Sisters Maria Jose and Mercedes are passionate about continuing to make wine as they're great grandfather did when he founded Lopez de Heredia in the late 1800's. If you ever have an opportunity to meet them I would highly recommend it, as their passion and love for the wine they make is infectious. And it should be. Their wines are without peer in Rioja. Lopez de Heredia makes absolutely amazing single vineyard wines that truly show an expression of terroir. All of these library wines come direct from the winery when we order them and are stored correctly. Gerry Dawes, a long time fan of Spanish wines and a noted wine journalist told me at one point that the two best wines he ever had where the 1942 and the 1947 Vina Bosconia from Lopez de Heredia. This is a rare opportunity to taste truly great aged wine.
