Vina Olabarri is located in this important Spanish region, and for years as the smallest winery, they supplied their high-quality fruit to the big players in the region. In 1985, the 100-year-old Anguciana winery was purchased by Pablo Olabarri and his intent was to use the quality fruit to produce estate bottled wine. Upon his death in 1990, his son Luis Olabarri took over the family estate and continues to oversee operations today. Current winemaker, Fernando Salgado’s techniques are rooted in tradition passed down from the 100-year-old estate. He supplements this wisdom with the best modern winemaking technology has to offer including a recently built modern winemaking facility. The current focus at the Olabarri estate is to make traditional age-worthy wines reflective of this special area in the “heart” of Rioja.
