R. López de Heredia Viña Cubillo Crianza
For over 130 years López de Heredia has stood as one of Spain’s greatest wine estates. Occupying the same historic cellars on the outskirts of Haro, it is a beacon for traditionally made wines. Unlike most wineries in the region, López de Heredia owns all of its own vineyards and is still operated by the same family that founded it. The winery is today managed by Maria José, Mercedes and Julio César. In the cellar they use the same techniques that were established during the late 1800’s - the use of only natural yeasts, no filtration, and extended ageing in wine barrels built onsite. Some wines are aged up to eight years in barrel prior to extended ageing in bottles prior to release! López de Heredia occupies a unique niche in a wine world constantly reinventing itself.
