Aromas of vanilla with wild fruits, mulberry and cherry. Smooth and fresh, with a good structure and balance of fruit and wood. On the palate flavours of spice and liquorice
Beronia is named after the Berones, a Celtic tribe who inhabited La Rioja in the 3rd Century BC. The winery was founded in 1973 by a group of local businessmen whose great love of food and wine attracted them to the idea of producing their own Rioja.
Bodegas Beronia is situated in Ollauri, the heart of Rioja Alta. To the North the Cantabria Mountain range and to the South the Demanda Mountain range, a unique area for the production of high quality wines. The influence of the Atlantic and the minerals from the Ebro river convert this area into a privileged area for the cultivation of the vine. In addition the diversity of the soils gives a great complexity and marked character to the wines.
After undergoing fermentation in tank the wine is stored in stainless steel for 12 months. It is then transferred to mixed oak barrels, where it matures for a further 12 months. A particular feature at Beronia are the mixed oak barrels, where the body staves of the cask are made from American oak, while the ends are French.
