VINEYARDS

Our Viña Lanciano vineyard lies on a breathtaking natural meander, shaped for thousands of years by the swells and low water periods of the river Ebro. In this fight for survival, vines sink their roots deep into the bedrock in search of nutrients -it is this vital effort that confers our wines their personality and singularity. The unique situation of Viña Lanciano, protected by the Sierra Cantabria mountains, creates a microclimate in these 72 hectares, which are some of the most sought-after location in Rioja Alta.

Respecting the earth and the balance of nature is part of our identity: hence, LAN’s efforts to support sustainable viticulture practices, an exquisite care for our grapes and the absence of any kind of chemical fertilizers.

Mantible Bridge

Our vineyard is surrounded by history. The Mantible Bridge, built in Roman times, can be seen from our estate. Legend has it that Charlemagne passed through the area on his way to rescue his most illustrious knights -known as The Twelve Peers- who had been kidnapped by the Saracens. Its colossal dimensions must have been impressive at the time: 164m long, 5m wide and composed with seven semicircular arches.

Viña Lanciano

Our Viña Lanciano is arguably Rioja’s most spectacular vineyards. The Ebro river acts as a natural frontier between Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa. Completely surrounded by a meander of the river in a region where small plots are standard, Viña Lanciano’s 72 hectares give us a real advantage to source our premium wines: Viña Lanciano, LAN A Mano and Culmen.

Divided into 24 plots, our Tempranillo, Mazuelo, Graciano and Garnacha vines, aged on average up to 60 years, enjoy a unique climate and terroir. The combination of climate, soil type, varieties and training, produces grapes with great personality. The soils of Viña Lanciano are stony and poor with little production and early ripening cycles. Protected from the winds and cold weather by the Sierra Cantabria and its proximity to the river, the estate follows sustainable viticulture practices in search of balance, a reinforcement of the plants’natural defences and a suitable environment that favours aeration and optimum sunshine levels on the bunches.

Grapes are hand-harvested throughout the estate when they reach their ripening peak. Once in the winery, bunches and grains are individually selected by hand to ensure that only perfect clusters make it through to the next stage.
