This is the posh bit of Rioja, the "Alavesa" region.
To say it's beautiful is an understatement and the small town of Laguardia where this winery sits is a walled, no-car wonder. Visit it!
I took this picture some years ago and it shows Laguardia from the Ruiz vineyard.
Very much a family concern with Julian making the wine assisted by Charo and daughters Ainhoa and Jaione. During the years since we met at a show in London, we have become firm friends and we enjoy really nice support from them in our activities.
