Casa Primicia, the oldest building in the town of Laguardia, is the place where, from the 15th century onwards, the Church used to collect tithes from its serfs, consisting of one tenth of the harvest, including grapes, and also the primicias. Over five hundred years later, in 1973, Casa Primicia was showing signs of its great age. The time-worn wooden-framed roof was close to collapse, and the historic long cellars hadn't stored any wine for some time. A vine-grower from Laguardia, Julián Madrid, rescued this historic building, restoring the long cellars and making wine once more in the stone troughs. Through his pioneering spirit, Casa Primicia Wineries came into being. Casa Primicia Wineries has harvested numerous awards at national and international level. In recent years, it's the only winery in Spain that can claim to have won the Grand Prix d'Honneur at the prestigious Bordeaux Fair in 1993 and the prize for Best European Wine at the 2002 Japan Wine Challenge in Tokyo. In 2007 three of the winery Read more »

    Sehr kräftiger Spanischer Wein. Muskulös, ziemlicher Barrique-Geschmack. Saubere Machart, eine gute Alternative zu Bordeaux. Read More

  • Bodegas Primicia Rioja 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Started with a 2008 Malbec tonight, then moved to this Rioja. I love riojas, normally for the fruit and low tannin, this vintage was rather astringent on the nose, the sip and the aftertaste. It's not the harshest I've ever had, but, it's def not smooth. In this case, I got what I paid for. I'm the wine drinker that likes to be pleasantly surpri... Read More

  • Bodegas Primicia Tempranillo Blend Rioja Reserva Carravalseca 2001

    Snoothrank:

    I almost missed an opportunity to fully appreciate this wine. It was on the 3rd day (1st day, left the bottle uncorked for 3 hrs, then corked with vacu vin) where it took a turn to the positive. Nose is nothing to write home about, but tastes of fleshy plum resonates. You will get a little black pepper spice action too, and a bit of tobacco a... Read More
