Faithful to tradition, this winery from La Rioja has been keeping the flame alive for more than a century.
The origins of the Gómez Cruzado winery go back to 1886, when Ángel Gómez de Arteche, a Mexican aristocrat of Basque origin also related to the Duchy of Moctezuma de Tultengo, started to produce wines in the Barrio de la Estación, the Haro district in which most of the original Rioja wineries built their headquarters.
As decades went by, bodega Gómez Cruzado passed through several hands until it was bought by its current owners, the Baños family, originary from La Rioja, but based in Mexico.
The estate of the Gómez Cruzado winery comprises 100 parcels of vineyards distributed across three zones, each with a different microclimate and soil typology: Alto Najerilla, Bajo Najerilla and Sierra Cantabria. The parcels are situated in the highest parts of Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa, at an average altitude of 600 metres, right on the border of the Mediterranean and Atlantic climate zones within the Iberian Peninsula. The winery cultivates only traditional Rioja varieties. The red ones are Tempranillo, Grenache, Maturana Tinta and Mazuela (aka Carignan); the white varieties are Viura, Tempranillo Blanco, White Grenache and Malvasía, used for blending and also for producing white wines.
A highly reputed winery, bodega Gómez Cruzado from El Barrio de la Estación in Haro produces quality wines that, while remaining faithful to the traditional style of the region, also look forward towards the future. Some of them, for instance, are vinified in concrete diposits. On average, the company produces around 200,000 bottles of wine a year.
