About our winery:

Amézola de la Mora is a family winery located in La Rioja. Surrounded by its own vineyard, the winery is placed in the foothills of Sierra de Cantabria, creating an unimaginable landscape.
It arose as a traditional winery inspired in an old-French-chateau style, following the grape self-sufficiency method, and becoming a pioneer in this system for the Rioja Qualified Designation of Origin
The entrepreneurial family tradition started by Íñigo and Javier, is nowadays followed by María and Cristina Amézola Downes, who picked up the baton from their mother Cristina in order to direct the project by empowering a new conception of wine
The winery has a traditional and modern character. A professional, young and dynamic team inherits the knowledge from the tradition and incorporates new advances in the wine making industry


Three things to love about us:

- The winery is one of the oldest in La Rioja and dates back to 1816. With the arriving of the philoxera the activity was stopped and a new generation recovered the underground cellars and replanted the vineyards in the 70`s and 80`s.
-This is the third generation taking care of the winery. Maria and Cristina, the current ownes, became the youngest winery propietors in Spain at the age of 18 and 17 years old back in 1999.
-Our family's filosophy is to transmit our passion towards wine, and make easy drinking traditional Rioja wines.


What makes us unique:

-It is one of the only three inspired in the French château style left in La Rioja.
-The winery buys in no grapes and makes all the wines from its own vineyards which is unique in La Rioja.
