The history of Bodegas Berceo is closely linked to the history and culture of La Rioja. Its existence and foundation dates back to the beginning of the XIX century, specifically to the year 1801.
The Muga Barahona family was the forerunner of what are now called Bodegas Berceo. At that time they were created as a family business without even having a commercial name. At the beginning, a small winery was built on land owned by the family, known as the Heras de Santa Lucia.
Bodegas Berceo was acquiring a reputation and its wine established itself as one of the best in the appellation. The family business began to expand to other wine areas. The Gonzalo de Berceo brand achieved such success that the Government of La Rioja itself wanted to buy the brand to name the generic DOC wine Rioja.
Currently, the management of the wineries is in charge of the fifth generation of the Fernández de Manzanos family, led by Víctor Fernández de Manzanos, who continue to work with the Gurpegui Muga family to perpetuate the legacy received.
A blend of grapes that come from farms throughout the Rioja Alta in which freshness, fruit and balance stand out, which is why farms with fertility soils and medium depth are selected, with a frank texture.
With a touch of barrel, the fruit and freshness of the wine of that area are enhanced with manual harvesting and cold pre-fermentation maceration. This wine is made in concrete tanks with 17 days of maceration in total with 3 daily manual pumping over. Malolactica in 70% French and 30% American barrels. Total aging of 5-6 months.
