The Story

100% Viura—an indigenous variety here—from biodynamically farmed vineyards, 1.5ha of which Sandra owns and 7.5 ha of which she rents. She is always the first to harvest, usually around the 3rd week of September, and she decides when it’s time by tasting the berries. Minimal treatments are “easy,” says Sandra, thanks to the ferocious and non-stop wind in these vineyards.

Brand Story

High up in the foothills of the Sierra de Toloño, in Rioja Alavesa, Sandra Bravo works in some of the oldest, and highest altitude vineyards in Rioja, growing Garnacha, Tempranillo, Viura and some Graciano. In her small winery in Villabuena de Álava, where she works with steel, anforas, and old wood, this young winemaker translates the mountainous landscape into pure and expressive wines. She harvests multiple varieties from micro-terroirs over many small plots that together form a fresh, beautiful image of the area.
