Viñedos del Contino was born in 1973, establishing the “château” concept in the Rioja region. Its wines are made exclusively from the vines planted on its 62 hectares. The estate’s vineyards embrace its ancestral home within a meander in the River Ebro, located in Laserna, near the village of Laguardia in the Rioja Alavesa winemaking region.
Don Vicente is one of the most historic plots at the Finca San Rafael. 44 acres of different soils and varieties, form a mosaic vineyard where the most characteristic variety is the Mazuelo. This one grows on stony 1980 soils.
Contino Mazuelo is a special wine with great personality, characterized by its finesse and expression of the terroir of Finca San Rafael.
