Situated in La Rioja Alta, on a hill that stands 80 metres above the surrounding countryside, Briones appears silhouetted against the sky, so reflecting the importance of the terroir on which it was built, the importance of a terroir that allows to get closer to heaven.
Since 1986, when Miguel Ángel de Gregorio discovered the excellent qualities of this land, the interaction between the two, between man and land, between intelligence and potential, has enabled to give their wines a unique personality of the very highest level.
The wines are made in the vineyard. This is the basic maxim on which the Allende wine-making philosophy is based.
The fields are cultivate without using any kind of herbicide or synthetic chemicals, so reducing carbon emissions. They protect and care for the vines by returning to traditional methods, doing many jobs manually with the help of draught animals. The estate believes in a sustainable form of grape-farming that is based on the firm conviction that the essence of their image lies in respect for the exceptional nature of the vineyards. The expressiveness of their soils. The respect for their uniqueness. The uniqueness of a style, the Allende style.
