Castillo de Fuenmayor
In one of the most traditional viticultural towns of Rioja, Castillo de Fuenmayor is a small Castle which was built with one goal in mind, "To make wines! Traditional wines that are agreeable to the palate". Founded by three wine experts with a passion for making wine in which their characters and personalities are transmitted into wines of superb quality and substance.
One of only two Denominación de Origen Calificada regions (the highest classification of Spanish wine) in Spain, Rioja flies the flag for Spanish wine worldwide. Made from the Tempranillo and Garnacha grapes, the red wines are famous for their heavily oak-influenced flavours. Rioja red wines are available in four categories, each signifying the amount of oak barrel ageing the wine has undergone: Rioja has spent less than a year in oak, Crianza at least two years ageing with at least one year in oak, Rioja Reserva must be aged three years with at least one in oak, and Rioja Gran Reserva must be aged two years in oak and three years in bottle.
