Remírez de Ganuza was the first winery in Spain to use a sorting table, adapted from a butcher’s counter. Like the butcher, Fernando Remírez de Ganuza saw that the grape bunch comprises different parts for different purposes.

Today, it has been replaced with a custom-built table with a metal divider down the middle, enabling our team to separate individual bunches into ‘shoulders’ – for reserva or gran reservas – saving the tips for younger, carbonic maceration wines

Arriving at the Remírez de Ganuza winery – a small hamlet made of old stone, a stream running through its central courtyard – visitors feel as if they’ve stepped back in time, to a more ancient and slower-paced Rioja.

Plastic Bag Wine Press

Simple yet ingenious, Remírez de Ganuza has introduced the use of a PVC bag that slowly fills with water to ever-so-gently press the grapes, while guarding against oxidation. This is used to create the unique intensity of our red reserva, Trasnocho.

Finest French Oak

Since our foundation in 1989, Remírez de Ganuza has championed the use of new French oak barriques.

The result? Our wines have become modern classics of Rioja with an inimitable style and structure, deep in colour and complexity – made to stand the test of time.
