Established in 1989, Remírez de Ganuza was set up as a personal enterprise by its founder, Fernando Remírez de Ganuza. From the outset the idea has been the same: Rigorous grape selection and minimal interference in the winemaking. This philosophy allows them to be as faithful as possible both to the vintage and the vineyard. The business developed by Fernando in the 1970s and 1980s in the northern area of Rioja allowed him to select the most suitable plots in the region to carry out his new project.

In 2001, Jesus Mendoza became head oenologist. Jesus has been part of the technical team since 1994 and his knowledge and passion for winemaking together with his eye for detail are key to the continuous improvement of Remírez de Ganuza wines through the years. The estate was one of the first in the world to hand select grapes in the winery and in fact, they patented a unique mechanical sorting table. Nothing is left to chance at Remirez de Ganuza which enables them to create wines with exceptional precision.

The vineyards are made up over eighty hectares of Tempranillo, Graciano, Grenache, Viura and Malvasia varieties. They are spread out through two hundred and forty plots in the Sierra Cantabria mountain area.

The reserva white is sensational and has an almost Burgundian feel.

Lemon-yellow in color with green hues, clean, bright and crystalline in appearance. The nose is very fine, high intensity with notes of fresh herbs, citrus and tropical fruit. On the palate, there's amazing volume, balance and fine structure. It has a long and fresh finish with delicate notes of creamy oak.
