A feature that distinguishes Tentenublo is the special situation of the 7 hectares of vineyards, spread over 19 plots located between Viñaspre and Lanciego, one of the lesser known areas of the Rioja region. The incredible diversity of these plots reflects the various wines that Tentenublo produces, which in all cases involve very small unique plots, so the final production is only a handful of very unique, great Rioja wines.

Bodega Tentenublo is one of the absolute new style Rioja makers. Made from a blend of Viura and Malvasia. The vineyards are all between 40 and 100 years old and they worked with minimal intervention and soil cultivation.

Very careful crushing of the grapes, manual pressing of the grapes and fermentation takes place in Hungarian oak where the wine remains for 5-6 baskets (with daily pumping). The Tentenublo Blanco is a sensation of fresh white fruit with a beautifully integrated light wood. -tone. The taste is long-lasting, somewhat fatty with a nice acidity. A great fresh, complex wine. The style is like a beautiful Burgundian, but unbeatable in terms of price. Only 5,438 bottles of this beautiful white Rioja were made. When young, open the bottle in time and do not drink this beautiful wine too cold (10-12 grands is perfect in our opinion).

In some cases, the wines receive a kind of WAX seal instead of a regular capsule. This serves no further purpose and has the disadvantage that it hardens quite quickly and pieces can easily crumble (spontaneously, during transport, etc.). This has no influence on the quality of the wine. We cannot provide any further guarantee for this.

Vineyard for 2021 Rioja Tentenublo Wines Blanco

One of our latest discoveries in the Rioja is a family business called "TENTENUBLO" (this refers to the ringing of the bells used in the villages of La Rioja to repel hail during the growing season). Oliván Roberto has been appointed on behalf of this winery. Although Oliván is relatively young, it already has a very renowned status as a top oenologist. Olivan does not follow the normal structure but makes modern Rioja's and also from vineyards that are unique. All Tentenublo vineyards are high by Rioja standards (at +600 meters) and have a loamy / marl soil. The sticks have to work hard and a lot is left to nature. The yields are extremely low and the wines surprise every Rioja connoisseur. Although this is a young winery, we predict that this house will belong to the absolute Spanish and International top in the coming years.
