Lagunilla Rioja Reserva 2005
Don Felipe Lagunilla San Martin founded this famous Rioja Bodega in 1885. The quality of the Lagunilla wines and many others owe much to his pioneering work in defeating Phylloxera which hit the region in the 1870’s. It was he who recommended the use and introduction of American rootstocks to the Rioja vineyards. His achievement was rewarded by a commendation of The Order of Merit, granted by King Alfonso XIII in 1908.
Bodegas Lagunilla is a historic winery founded in 1885 by Don Felipe Lagunilla San Martin in Rioja, Spain. Lagunilla is credited with leading the Spanish charge to replant vines grafted with American rootstock to ward off Phylloxera during the late 19th century crisis. Today, the winery is committed to adhering to Rioja traditions while using the latest innovations in wine technology.
