Bodegas Forcada Rioja is a multi award winning family owned winery located in the far south of the Rioja region. Situated in a unique biosphere, which prohibits the use of pesticides and herbicides, the old vines of the Forcada family are grown at a height of 800 metres on complex soils they share with the wild fauna and flora of the region.
The vineyard are scattered in small parcels in the hills of this unique terroir and handpicked due to the challenging geography of the region,
The vines are on average between 30 and 100 years old producing wines of richness and intensity.
