In 1972 a family business with Rioja roots decided to recover its origins by founding Bodegas Alavesas at the foot of the Laguardia walls, a medieval village located in the heart of the Rioja Alavesa.
At the end of the 70s, the family decided to expand the wine business to new denominations, choosing Ribera del Duero, thus becoming one of the first Riojan wineries to establish themselves in this denomination.
Today 35 years after its constitution Solar de Samaniego continues to belong only to the family group that founded it, with the fourth generation entering the business.
Years and years of knowledge and hobby transmitted from parents to children, devoted to the patient and artisan miracle of transforming the unparalleled grape of their land into wine capable of marveling tasters around the world.
La Escobosa is surely one of the most special places in the entire Rioja Alavesa, and it is precisely this fact that caused Bodegas Alavesas to baptize its first wine as Solar de Samaniego strong more than 35 years ago >.
If you want to visit one of the wineries with more tradition of the Rioja Alavesa, contact Solar de Samaniego and request the reservation of your visit or your tasting. You will enjoy wine tourism that breathes wine tradition in all its corners.
