Wine Story:
. Barón de Ley is a winery founded in 1985 by a small group of Rioja wine professionals and who conceive and start a project of innovative and unique characteristics in this prestigeous DOCa.

. The original Baron de Ley project was based on the idea of developing a purely "vineyard driven" winery, oriented to the production of high quality wines from own vineyards.

. The other main guideline behind the projecy was to develop and implement a new style of "modern" Rioja wines; wines of deeper colour, structure and concentration, in line with what today's most discerning consumers are looking for.

. With this objective in mind, the winery specialized in Reserva wines since its beginnings.
