Gran Bohedal Rioja Blanco is consistently one of the best white wines we stock. It’s loved by many restaurant clients and is a thrilling match with local Scottish seafood. TheViura grapes come from 90 year old vines in a vineyard called Las Cruces whichis located in Brinas. These old vines produce a wine of great concentration andfinesse which is fermented separately in three different types of oak barrel –French, American and Romanian – before being blended together. The resultingwine is immensely complex and the balance between toasty coconut oak andpeachy, zingy, limey, herbal fruit is world class.

Bodegas Bohedal is a small familywinery based in Cuzcurrita del Río Tirón, 10 km from Haro, in the heart of LaRioja Alta. The first vines were planted by great granddad Pepe in 1917 andtoday his great grandchildren, Leire and Elisa, aided by their father run thissuperb operation. There is no delusion of grandeur at Bohedal despite the winesreceiving fantastic reviews and awards. This is a family operation and there isa belief that their wines are meant to be drunk, enjoyed and loved at any time.
