Altanza began its story in 1998 as synonym of quality and dedicated exclusively to top Reserva wines. Since then, our goal has been to offer the best possible quality wine at a sensible price.
Located in Fuenmayor (Rioja Alta), we try to show daily how to combine tradition and modernity.
Bodegas Altanza is a winery that emerges being distinguished for their identity, passion, know-how and creativity producing great wines like the Collection of Spanish Artists. Our wines are made in a modern style from 100% Tempranillo. The wines are fermented using natural yeasts and then aged in entirely French oak barrels which are renewed every 5 years
Tradition is not only reflected in the beautiful main building and French gardens, but also in the variety we have preferred for all our reds, Tempranillo, and certain winemaking features, like the choice of vertical presses or the extra value added to the ageing process by nine 22,000L Allier vats. Besides, three-quarters of our 7,500 casks are made of French oak.
Technology can mainly be seen in our stainless-steel tanks of several sizes, which allows for a better, more flexible “personalization”, all equipped with temperature-control jackets and surveyed by a control panel. We have our own lab and modern wine-storage facilities too.
Our estate spans 300 ha. (740 acres), 220 of which are vineyards. The estate provides sixty percent of the total amount of grapes we need; the rest follows a strict selection process.
