Eguren Ugarte is a family company, whose Riojas are estate grown and bottled, which traces its winemaking back to 1870, when Don Amancio Ugarte Ugarte began to cultivate vines and mature his own wines. Situated in the Rioja Alavesa just outside the lovely medieval hill town of Laguardia, Victorino Eguren Ugarte, grandson of the founder, with his children built the new Rioja cellar Ugarte in 1989. They are built on top of old cellars carved out of the rock, and overlook the family vineyard. It is one of the few family companies in Rioja which undertake all stages of wine-growing and elaboration of the wine.
Malvasia from a vineyard planted in 1920. It is fermented and aged in new French oak for 4 months. Honeysuckle nose, and elegant, complex, textured palate
