Wine maker notes
The grapes are hand-harvested into small baskets toprevent bruising. The bunches are brought to triage tables for selection of only the healthiest, ripest grapes. The fermentation temperature is between 68F and 77F. The long slow maceration enables us to extract great aroma and color potential. The complexity of the wine is enhanced by malolactic fermentation.

Producer
Bodegas y Vinedos Ilurce is a family company founded by grandfather Amador Escudero Perez in 1940, after the Spanish Civil War, when he bought a winery located in Alfaro (La Rioja). But, in fact, the origin is the great grandfather (Juan Escudero) who was cultivating vineyards and making wine in 1850, in a village called Gravalos (La Rioja). In the old winery 3 generations (the grandfather, our father Amador Escudero Abad and us) have been making wines until 2010. In 1994 our father, Amador Escudero Abad, created the brand ILURCE making young red and rose wines. In 2000, we start to lay down wine in barrels, so the first Ilurce crianza wine (2000 vintage) was born in 2003. In those years, we started to export wines, so we need more facilities and our winery became small. In 2010, the Escudero Carra family started to make wine in a new winery, just built to develop new projects, new activities, … but without forgetting that the most important is our vineyards and the know-how inherited from our ancestors.
