Bodegas Obalo

A vineyard and location that transmits a vision of a historic land

The weight of tradition and the personality provided by such a historic land as La Rioja make initiating a wine project in this area a major challenge and huge responsibility. Our decision to start an adventure in this environment arose once again due to the vineyards and the fact that we could not resist the temptation of offering our particular vision of what this region means to us.

We started this journey in 2006, in a building with a shape and location that expressed a clear declaration of intent. From our bodega, in the village of Ábalos, we can see on one side a sea of vineyards that have historically produced great Rioja wines and on the other side the Cantabrian Mountain Range, which protects them and directly conditions our climate.

With these two elements in mind, which we can always enjoy viewing when inside the bodega, we built our project. After fifteen year, we continue working those small vineyards, many of which are over a century old and thanks to their particular characteristics give our wines their personality.

We work with vineyards that are either on the slopes of the mountain, facing the south and at altitudes reaching 700m; in the valley, stretching like a sea of vineyards before the bodega; or on the landscape’s undulations in the form of terraces, all of which have different orientations and hours of sun exposure.

The grape always enters our bodega manually. When planning the bodega’s construction project, we decided not to install a hop to introduce the grape, with the aim of making singular wines and producing very low yields.
