Bodega Pago de Larrea is a perfectly situated 15.5 hectare vineyard planted in 1980 and privately owned by the Larrea family who were co-founders of Vina Salceda. The vines are protected from harsh winds and rain by a limestone ridge to the north, and border the River Ebro to the south, dividing the Rioja Alavesa from the Rioja Alta.
Luis’ wines have an individual character and greater dimension than some of the bigger names, while maintaining a distinctive Rioja profile, and avoiding the over-extracted ‘international’ style of many new-wave Riojas. A spicy, fruit-driven organic Rioja from a boutique, organic estate, where quality rather than quantity is the maxim. A Quality Rioja destined to be enjoyed with a rack of Lamb.
