A natural viticultural paradise, the Famatina Valley offers ideal grape-growing conditions. Powerful sunlight, low rainfall and high altitudes come together to yield wines with supreme balance and intense yet delicate flavours. Winemaker Rodolfo Griguol is one of Argentina’s most respected viticulturists, and has been instrumental in the development of the fresh-tasting, fruit-driven styles we known the winery for today.
Established in the 1940s, the ‘La Riojana’ winery was set up to make wine from the harvest of a few hundred small growers working the valleys. Here, where wine is the lifeblood of the local people, La Riojana has a clear social mission. They are one of the leading Fairtrade-certified wineries in the world. This is absolutely key to everything they do and can achieve, from providing work for 1,000 families to offering fair prices for their grapes as well as benefits like insurance and education programmes.
La Riojana’s development work has seen schools and clinics built, and pumps renovated to supply villages with clean water for the first time in years. Every bottle of wine sold helps La Riojana to build communities and improve the lives of thousands. The premiums from our wines are helping fund school buses and laptops for local children, with education being seen as the key focus for personal development.
