Surrounded by mountains, rivers, valleys and castles all around, the Castillo Clavijo winery, located in the heart of Doca Rioja, is a sight to behold. This area is ideal for growing grapes because it is blessed with the perfect mix of Mediterranean and Atlantic climatic conditions.
The barrel-aged Castillo Clavijo wines crafted at the winery will give you an exact representation of the rich wine history of the Rioja region. To tap the potential of the Rioja area to the maximum possible extent, Bodegas Castillo Clavijo has signed an agreement with 500 small winegrowers in the area. This deal helped them explore the various terroirs and soils of the Rioja area and plant the right varietals. This is the main reason why the grapes reflect the true character and heritage of the terroirs in this region.
We only managed to source 17 bottles of this superb Rioja (please note this is the Rioja Reserva not the Crianza or Tempranillo versions which are cheaper) and can pass on great savings to you at just £8.95 a bottle.
