The struggle for the expression of the territory

PROELIO

Proelio is our Riojan winery dedicated to showing red wines that express privileged territories. A commitment to preserving the old, high-altitude vineyards of different areas of Rioja. The plots that make up the soul of Proelio, "battle" in Latin, are small pieces of land that remain standing in their fight against extinction: garnachas, tempranillos or gracianos from old and wise vines, which produce fruit capable of building living, expressive and long-lasting wines.

At Proelio, we seek to produce wines with typical characteristics, from privileged territories that have been little explored. After a detailed study, we adapt each agricultural task to the requirements of each plot. We have our own top-of-the-range vineyards located at high altitudes, fresh sites of old vines that are worked with care to achieve wines that are inimitable, but at the same time, that speak of this Rioja. A raw material that is a real treasure, and as such is treated in the winery to make the wines.

Rioja is charged with a typicality that marks Nature and man interprets it.

Some reds that speak of the territory

PROELIO CRIANZA

A wine that speaks of the Sonsierra in Rioja Alta and Alavesa, of the landscapes of Alto Najerilla, Albelda de Iregua and the Moncalvillo slopes, a balanced combination of Tempranillo with small additions of Garnacha and Maturana.
Old bush vines and a traditional ageing process result in a wine that is fruity, lively and fresh, balanced and softly textured.

PROELIO RESERVA

Tempranillo (85%), Garnacha (10%) and Graciano (5%) from old bush vines aged between 50 and 80 years, grown in Alto Najerilla, Sonsierra Riojana and Montes de Clavijo.
This blend of landscapes produces a complex and intense red wine with freshness, depth and a powerful finish.

PROELIO
VIÑEDOS VIEJOS

A 100% Garnacha from 80-year-old vines and very old clones, grown in of small vineyards in the Alto Najerilla region with clay-ferrous soils in Cárdenas.
A structured, complex and aromatic red laden with dark fruit notes, which are characteristic of how Garnacha ripens in these soils. Unctuous, silky and complex.

LA CANAL DEL ROJO

Named after the eponymous vineyard, this red comes from 80-year-old Garnacha vines in Badarán. The soils contain depleted ferrous clay as well as angular colluvial stones on the topsoil. The old-clone vines are over 80 years of age and the wine is made with full clusters hence the character of the variety prevails.
La Canal del Rojo is thus a different wine —fresh, fruity, mineral, and transparent as it expresses Garnacha’s elegant side, with wild notes; aromatic and persistent.

PUERTO RUBIO

Sourced from a vineyard at 505 metres above sea level in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, the wine takes its name from the site it is located on. The soils are primarily composed of depleted limestone in the subsoil and pebbles on the topsoil. Vines in Puerto Rubio are over 70 years old and for us, it is one of the finest vineyards in La Rioja.
Puerto Rubio is 95% Tempranillo and 5% Viura from very old clones. Only a fraction of the grapes are destemmed. It is fermented with its own yeasts and aged in large 3,000-litre wooden casks, although the wine is blended in 4,000-litre concrete tanks. Fresh, structured and complex, this wine is very aromatic, with silky texture and mineral notes. It is vertical and polished on the palate.
