Bodegas Benito Urbina is a family-owned Single Estate winery situated in Cuzcurrita de Río Tirón, on the north-western edge of DOCa Rioja Alta. It is an area that produces wines with a great capacity for ageing, and is therefore excellent for the production of Reservas and Gran Reservas. They own 75 hectares of vineyards, 65 of Tempranillo, and 10 of Graciano, Mazuelo and Viura. Terroir plays an essential role in their vineyards: clay-calcareous soils on the right bank of the river Tirón are ideal for wines which undergo the lengthy ageing process characteristic of the Urbina wines, clay-ferrous soils in the villages of Urunuela-Cenicero are perfect for fresh, young wines, and finally sandy-limestone on the left bank of the Tirón close to Haro is suitable for the Urbina wines in between these previous two. Urbina has a capacity to produce 300,000 bottles of Red Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva and 50,000 bottles of White and Rosado, using grapes from their own vineyards.

Four generations of the family have dedicated themselves to the cultivation of their vineyards and the production of wine since 1870. In 1975 the bodega began to age and bottle their own wine in order to retain the special characteristics of a small single Estate. Their sole objective, the production of quality wines, has been achieved as the result of careful viticulture using traditional techniques, harvesting by hand, the application of organic fertilizers only, avoiding the use of weed killers and pesticides, and the use of indigenous yeasts. The vines are grown in bush form and some are trained by cordon, with controlled yields not exceeding 4500 kilos/ha.There has been a large investment in modern installations, stainless steel fermentation tanks and a bottling plant. We are the sole UK agents for Bodegas Benito Urbina.
