Amézola produces quintessentiel Rioja, from Rioja Alta. The Bodega forms its own little enclave, surrounded by its all its own vineyards. They own and work entirely with their own grapes from their 60ha of vineyards, made up of 10 parcels. Tempranillo is grown over seven of them, with one parcel each of Graciano, Mazuelo and Viura. The vines which are mostly grown as the traditional bush vines, averaging 40 to 50 years old, with oldest planted in 1970. Everything is harvested by hand to allow them the flexibility of working specific sections of individual parcels, as the grapes reach optimum ripeness.
