Founded in 2016, Rosario Vera is the newest winery from Gil Family Estates. It is located in the town of Laguardia in the D.O.Ca. of Rioja, Spain. The Rioja Alavesa area was chosen because of its proximity to the Sierra de Cantabria. The mountainous alignment isolates La Rioja from maritime influence. The precipitations, that take place are mainly in spring and autumn.
Rosario Vera’s vineyards consist of small plots, planted 15 to 60 years ago. Calcareous clay soils, the climate, as well as high altitude, make a perfect place to grow vines and obtain high quality grapes.
Winemakers: Bartolomé Abellán and Sara García.
