Oxer has always wanted to make wines in Rioja Alavesa and in 2005 he went to Laguardia convinced of the uniqueness of that area. Convinced of the uniqueness, Oxer invests every penny in buying old parcels.
The vineyards in La Rioja Alavesa are organically worked in regenerative agriculture. Man and mule work the land with great care and respect for the old vineyards. Both the name and the labeling are carried out in an expected detail, from the meaning to the symbolism, expressing it perfectly with its labels that try to express its universe. All the meticulous work in the vineyards and cellar ends in elegant and fresh wines.
ARTILLERO - Its name comes from the former owner of the vineyard, who was a gunner in the civil war, becoming his nickname in the town. Oxer as thanks for the great care he gave to the vineyard ( 99 years old ), he decided to give his wine the nickname of this man.
