With a wine tradition dating back to 1870, the Eguren family belongs to the absolute top with wines such as the Sierra Cantabria, San Vicente Manor, Numanthia-Termes (recently sold to LVMH group). The La Nieta is the top wine and flagship of Eguren and comes from a very small 1.75 hectare vineyard which was planted in 1975 in Páganos (Laguardia, Rioja Alava) at an altitude of 525 meters above sea level. The soil is very calcareous clay soil. LaNieta means "Granddaughter" and is a project that Eguren started after the birth of his granddaughter.

The grapes ferment in four 1000-litre oak barrels and the wine ages in new French barriques for 16 months. The nose is subtle, ripe without exaggeration. The La Nieta is at the same time a very powerful and a very elegant wine, a combination that is not so easy to find. The taste is medium to full-bodied with a very mineral feel. The wine can be drunk now, but with a hearty steak, but you will certainly be rewarded if you leave this for a few more years.

Only 5000 bottles of La Nieta have been produced and this wine belongs to the top of Spain. Parker also writes about the La Nieta " Nieta has been the star again" This is a fantastic 5 liter liter in a beautiful original wooden box. Only a handful of these were produced. Even tastier and longer lasting.

Vineyard for 2020 Paganos La Nieta Jeroboam (5 liter)

The Spanish winery Viñedos de Paganos is an exclusive winery in the medieval village of Laguardia and is one of Hermanos Eguren's beautiful wineries. The winery is located in the subregion Rioja Alavesa at the foot of the Sierra de Cantabria at about 600 meters altitude. The area is surrounded by dolmens, archaeological sites, chapels and old medieval churches.

Paganos winery has an underground cellar, located under the vineyards, carved into the rock.

The area has an Atlantic climate with continental nuances, and is sheltered from the cold winds from the north by the Sierra de Cantabria mountains. The soils of this estate, calcareous loam or clay loam with a high minerality in texture, give the vineyard, and therefore the wine, a unique mineral character with exceptional personality. Under this soil you can find a sandstone substrate where the roots are perfectly integrated.

Paganos winery was founded in 1998 by Marcos and Miguel Eguren, with the aim of producing great wines with great intrinsic characteristics and personality. The beautiful combination of climate, soil and vine varieties made this mission a complete success.
