Since its foundation in 1901, Bodegas Bilbaínas has always stood out for a respect for the traditions, land and history of Rioja. In this special 120th ANNIVERSARY edition, we would like to convey and publicize the values of Bodegas Bilbaínas: origin, land and tradition. The wine manifests itself as a miscellany of the Rioja
landscape, capturing the wealth offered by the grape varieties native to Rioja. It is a wine made with 4 red Rioja varieties, crafted and aged separately in order to harness the potential and expression of each one.

Very deep, elegant, complex aromas. Dark fruit and violets against a balsamic, mineral background.

Founded in 1901 in the town of Haro’s legendary Station Quarter, Bodegas Bilbaínas is the longest-standing bottling winery in Rioja. It also has the most extensive underground cellars in the region and a greater area of vineyards than any other winery in the town: 250 hectares of high quality vines, which supply the winery with its own grapes, ensuring that they can be processed quickly without losing their qualities. Viña Pomal is its flagship brand, which embodies the Rioja Alta's best winemaking tradition. These are exceptional wines that have remained faithful to the classic style of authentic Rioja from the outset.
They are made separately, in open tanks, with specific

They are made separately, in open tanks, with specific controlled temperatures for each variety. All varieties are allowed to ferment spontaneously. Gentle crushing and destemming, vatting and fermentation with a long maceration.
The 2019 vintage in the DOCa Rioja had a moderate
volume, with less compact bunches and smaller grapes, all of
which is key to ensuring the utmost quality.
The grapes’ outstanding condition, made possible by extraordinary weather conditions throughout harvest and particularly during the month of October, made this vintage truly exceptional. Good canopy development was key to achieve these results. There were no major weather setbacks, making it possible to schedule the harvest at the optimum time. The rains came at just the right time and the plants remained in extraordinary condition throughout the year, allowing us to achieve balanced wines with great aromatic intensity and very good colour extraction. Outstanding balance between pH, acidity and alcohol despite the fact that, at the end of the harvest, high temperatures accelerated ripening and the alcoholic strength rose a little.
