Viñedos Hontza is a project located in the medieval village of Labraza, in the easternmost point of Rioja Alavesa. We work goblet-trained vineyards that date back 30 to 80 years. Ours is the first and only winery in the village. Our work philosophy is to enhance the value of the smallholdings so characteristic of Rioja Alavesa, vinifying them in some cases separately, in order to differentiate the different “terroirs” that can be found in the rocky landscape of Labraza. In accordance with our philosophy, we believe in farming organically (certified), always looking to express the land at its best. Furthermore, our wines are natural wines, without any processing before or during fermentation and only, on occasion, using sulphur-based protection just before bottling.

  • Grape varieties: Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazulelo, Viura and Calagreño. Although we avoid focusing on the wine variety, instead focusing on making wines linked to areas, places or specific plots, co-fermentation is very common in our winery.
  • Types of wine: We produce wines linked to the different areas of the municipality, and are difficult to classify in one category or another. Harvesting, maceration and aging depend on the year and the plot. Our wines are marketed under the brand names Garaya, Behera, Valtide
