About The Producer
The Najerilla valley, in the Rioja Alta region, is a landscape marked by the vineyards that spread throughout the area. This is where Bodegas Fin de Siglo is located. A cellar owned by the Perelada Group since early 2014.
In the town of Arenzana de Abajo, local vine growers have succeded to maintain vines that are more than 100 years old. Vines that are totally adapted to its soil and climate conditions.
Bodegas Fin de Siglo is created in 1999 by a small group of families, vine growers of many generations. The main goal was to to take the best out of the old vines of this region. They produce high quality clusters, with small and very concentrated grapes, which allow to make wines with more structure, body and aromas.
Currently, Bodegas Fin de Siglo is a member of Peralada Castle's Wineries Group.
The vineyards hold the essence of Bodegas Fin de Siglo, which owns 45 hectares and has absolute control over 10 hectares more. There grow both red (Garnacha, Tempranillo, Mazuelo) and white varietals (Viura, Malvasía), all of them autochthonous of the DOCa Rioja.
An important number of these vineyards are very old, with some Garnachas being 80 or even more than 100 years old. They produce low yields of selected grapes around 3,500 Kg/ha (the appellation allows up to 6,500 Kg/ha).
Bodegas Fin de Siglo controls the winemaking process from the vineyard to the market: pruning of every plot, vines care, monitoring of the ripening process, selective hand harvesting… Everything to obtain grapes of the highest quality. The whole process is also controlled in the cellar, with a perfect traceability.
