WINEMAKER Barón de Ley

BARÓN DE LEY is a winery which was founded in 1985 by a small group of prestigious Rioja professionals who decided to create a project which was unique at that time in the Denominación de Origen Calificada Rioja: a winery modelled on the Médoc châteaux, bringing together all the conditions that make a wine a work of art.

With this objective, the creators of BARÓN DE LEY acquired the Imas estate, within the boundaries of Mendavia and on the left bank of the River Ebro.

It is an exceptional place for growing vines due to its climatic conditions and the characteristics of its soils, on which 90 hectares of vines were planted on the grounds on a 16th century monastery.

A look inside the old monastery reveals immaculate and efficient facilities, housing high-tech temperature controlled steel tanks, 10,000 new oak barrels, and a 5-million-bottle cellar.

In 2004, the winery purchased an additional 500 parcels of land, resulting in a 1200 acre estate that has been planted with Tempranillo as well as Garnacha, Graciano and experimental varieties such as Maturana.

This project is a strong testament to the estate’s desire to continue to control all levels of winemaking, from vine to bottle.
