La maldita

Territory

Until half a century ago Garnacha was the second most important grape variety in Rioja. Known as La Maldita because of the difficulty in producing high quality wines with them, and because of their low yields and low yields for the winegrower, it gradually fell into oblivion.

Only a few thousand hectares remain from that patrimony. Old vineyards, secluded, hidden in rocky terrain of difficult access, high altitude and complicated to work. But it is a living heritage that Viñedos La Maldita tries to rescue in areas where still today its spirit struggles to recover its fullness.
