For almost half a century, Bodegas y Viñedos Labastida have been putting their extensive knowledge and experience into making quality wines. They continue this tradition, while also staying on top of the latest advances in vinification. Established in 1964 by a group of local vine growers, the cooperative has currently 152 members. All of them apply their experience and know-how to obtain the best quality wines from their 1,330 acres of own vineyards planted with vines which are over 25 years old. The entire production is controlled from the vine to the bottle. Nestled between the Sierra Cantabria mountains and the river Ebro, the climatic conditions of the winery’s surroundings are unique in Rioja, offering their vine growers the best conditions for cultiva¬ting high-quality grapes.
This is a winery with one of the largest vineyards in Rioja. It produces more traditional style Rioja wines. The Castillo Labastida Reserva has 91 points from Wine Advocate and was also include in his book, Robert Parker’s Wine Bargains, The World’s Best Wine under $25.
