Built in 1991, with a modernist style, it is provided with the best existing technology in the market for the making of quality wines. The production premises has a capacity of 1.250.000 litres, it is provided with stainless steel tanks and wooden vats made of French oak, pneumatic press, control equipment for the cold fermentation temperature, carbonic maceration, etc. Vina Ijalba is the first winery in La Rioja which has been certified with the ISO-14.001 regulations (Environmental Certificate), performing all the winery processes in a natural way, being strictly environmental, without chemical additives, recycling waste and treating our sewage waters. The innovative system of treating sewage water through a green filter has been included in a European environmental protection project LIFE due to its originality. Since 1999 we carry out our grape picking in 20 kg boxes which allow us to make a manual selection of all the grapes from our vineyards, bunch per bunch using exclusively healthy and totally mature grapes for our wines. We have also made a strong effort in recuperating the elaboration of a whole grape for our "Solferino" wine, as we have also done with the treading of these grapes. For the maturing of our wines we have an underground conditioned barrel room in which 3.000 barrels made with the best French and American oak are settled. Read less

Pale yellow in color. The nose shows menthol, apple, iron rich earth and light petrol. Light in the mouth with a delicate medium weight acidity. Flavors follow somewhat the nose with apple being pronounced, light flowers, and a light vegetal note. Interesting wine from a grape that is not grown anywhere else. 2.5/5 [NR]

Made from 100% White Tempranilllo which has mutated from old red vines which have been farmed ecologically. Barrel fermented and aged in oak for a few months also cultured with only indigenous yeast bottled unfiltered. Dark straw color with an nose of apple cider, apple tart, and slighty oxidised which I believe is the style of the wine. The palate has flavors of ripe yellow apples, spicyness, with some toasted nut and honey nuances. Full bodied, with bright acidity, and a long finish. A very unique wine, I have never had white tempranillo before and it reminded me a lot of Rhone whites. I like this wine but don't love it. I still recommend this wine because its frigging white Tempranillo, when the last time you've had that?
