Ivan and Mario Santos

Featured Producer

Brothers Ivan & Mario Santos are 4th generation winemakers who took over in 2006. They are determined to produce a modern style of Rioja with minimal intervention and organic practises that express the grape and terroir. They do not use the age categories which are so famous in Rioja. They believe that the grape is more important than ageing a wine for a set period of time when it might not need it! For this reason their wines contain high proportions of Garnacha and do not have Crianza or Reserva on the labels. They farm 16 hectares of vineyards of which 8 are Garnacha. Most of the vineyards sit between 400 & 850 meters above sea level and some were planted over 100 years ago giving them magical old vines to work with.
