López de Heredia
López de Heredia is a staunch traditionalist. Little has changed in the 130 years since its founding, including ownership. It has been passed down through generations who have carried tradition forward—why fix something that is not broken?
The family owns, manages, and makes their own wines—even making their own barrels. They make two Gran Reserva wines that are aged between six-eight years in barrel, Viña Bosconia and Tondonia, which are only made in the best years. The Tondonia displays a bit more restraint, while the Bosconia is a bit showier.
These wines exhibit complex primary and tertiary aromas from aging that make them enjoyable upon release but still with age-worthy structure.
