Baron de Ley

Spain » Rioja » Baron de Ley
Founded in 1985, Barón de Ley is a single-estate winery located in Rioja Baja focusing on high quality Reserva and Gran Reserva wines. Based on the “Château” concept, grapes are sourced exclusively from the property’s estate vineyards. This is an innovative step in a region where wineries typically source grapes from independent growers throughout the area.

Barón de Ley’s unique personality blends the best of old and new. Located on the grounds of a 16th century monastery on the east bank of the river Ebro in Mendavia, the estate covers 175 acres planted primarily to Tempranillo, and a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon. Quality and attention to detail are an obsession at Barón de Ley, where the ancient architecture belies the latest winemaking equipment. A look inside the old monastery reveals immaculate and efficient facilities, housing high-tech temperature- controlled steel tanks, 10,000 new oak barrels, and a 5-million-bottle cellar.

In 2004, the winery purchased an additional 500 parcels of land, resulting in a 1,200-acre estate that will be planted with Tempranillo as well as Garnacha, Graciano and experimental varieties such as Maturana. This project is a strong testament to the estate’s desire to continue to control all levels of winemaking, from vine to bottle.
