ABOUT BODEGAS AGE

Bodegas Age

 

   

In 1881, Félix Azpilicueta founded Bodegas Azpilicueta, nowadays known as Bodegas AGE.  Over a century later, it reflects the efforts of the various generations that have devoted their lives to making and ageing prestigious Rioja wines. The brand SIGLO was the first RIOJA to be exported to America.  Its famous burlap was initially used to protect the bottle against breakage and temperature changes.  Today, the burlap (saco) still serves its purpose and continues being placed by hand at the bottling line in colloboration with ASPRODEMA a local non-profit association dedicated to finding employment for developmentally challenged adults.

 ABOUT RIOJA

rioja-spain-vinamericas

Spain’s  best known wine producing region. The Oja river (Rio Oja) is believed to have given the region its name. Rioja was the first region in Spain to be awarded the highest DOCa (Denominacion de Origen Calificada) category, due to its proven record in consistently producing top-quality wines. Rioja is divided into three SUBREGIONS: Rioja Baja, Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa. Rioja Baja's climate is warmer and the soils sandier, yielding more alcoholic wines with greater concentration. Rioja Alta has higher elevation and colder weather and is mostly located south of the Ebro river. Rioja Alavesa is the smallest subregion and is exclusively located north of the Ebro river in the provice of Alava (Basque Country).
