In 1998, Miguel Angel de Gregorio of Finca Allende and Vila Viniteca formed a partnership to embark on a new project in La Rioja called „Paisajes y Viñedos‟. With Miguel‟s wide knowledge of La Rioja and his winemaking experience, each year he selects different vineyards belonging to different owners. The sites are selected based on their geographical qualities so that very elegant and unique wines can be made.
Paisajes means “landscape” in Spanish, hoping to show the unique part of the vineyard. Miguel's winemaking philosophy is to produce unique and non-imitable wines through the different characteristics and potential of the soil. Decanter has awarded 98 points to this precious winemaker.
Due to the regulations of the legal denomination region, the distribution of the wine can only be labelled Rioja, and the wine is directly named after the number of the vineyard area, from 1 to 9 currently, wines are not elaborated every year, but only produce in the best years. The famous wine critic Robert Parker has repeatedly rated more than 90 points. Besides, it´s also selected as designated wines on the wine list of El Bulli, one of the world´s best Spanish restaurants of 3 stars Michelin for five consecutive years. Each wine has a limited annual production of around 5,000 bottles, which is the global wine lovers competing for the purchase, and are the Rioja wines that can´t be missed.
