Bodega Áster is the branch of Grupo La Rioja Alta in Ribera del Duero.
In 1988, Grupo La Rioja Alta, based in Haro, began researching and analyzing several terroirs in Ribera del Duero in order to find the best area to start a new winery. After much consideration, in 1991 they decided to settle in the town of Anguix, acquiring some vineyards and planting some new ones. The latter, though, did not reached the required quality level until ten years after, in 2001.
Trellis-trained, the Tinta del País vineyards are at an altitude over 800 metres. They cover an extension of 95 hectares, 76 of which are young vineyards planted in sandy-clayey soils.
The facilites of Bodegas Áster were built in 2002. Nowadays, the winery houses 4,000 vats and no less than 2,700 French and American oak barrels.
More than a quarter of a century after its foundation, it is fair to say that the wines produced by Bodegas Áster have managed to combine tradition and innovation.
