Beronia lies in a priviledged spot in Rioja Alta, not far from Haro, and is surrounded by vineyards. Founded 40 years ago by a group of businessmen from San Sebastián, this winery has enjoyed considerable success and has grown to be a significant player in the region. They continue to innovate and as well as producing great examples of all the classic styles, also produce an interesting range of single varietals and some intriguing top wines. The house style cleverly walks the tightrope between traditional and modern, making wines that people enjoy drinking.
Gran Reservas are the elder statesmen of the wine world and until recently they seemed to be shuffled off down a dark alley, with younger trendier "Vinos de Autor" grabbing all the limelight and points! But as times change and people tired of turbocharged inky Riojas for silly prices, Gran Reservas are back and suddenly seeming like good value. Where else cany you buy top wines from a famous region that have been aged for long periods in barrel and then bottle in the winery itself, then sold when mature and ready to drink, for such reasonable prices? Soft and autumnal with real warmth and length.

La Rioja Alta is another absolute classic Riojan winery, yet despite being located where all the action is, in Haro's Barrio de la Estación, is often overlooked. But maybe they like it that way. Never one to be too showy and not the loudest voice at the party, this superb company has...
