    It matches to perfection mildly-flavoured dishes such as risotto, cheeses, pâtés, casseroles, greens, and fish. It also accompanies very well any meats as well as dishes that traditionally pair well with red vintage wines.

In 1859 the French company Savignon Frères et Cie settled in Haro and founded the winery. In 1901, once the phylloxera problem had been eradicated from French vineyards, a group of businessmen from La Rioja and Bilbao purchased the property and founded Bodegas Bilbaínas. Bodegas Bilbaínas is the first and oldest bottling winery in the DO Rioja. In 1997, the Codorníu Group acquired Bodegas Bilbaínas maintaining the philosophy on which it was originally based, that is, to produce wines from specific vines from its own property, thereby assuring wines with personality, called "Vinos de Finca" ("Estate" wines) or "Vinos de Pago" (a term used to describe wines that are produced in microclimates, or in particular, localised soil conditions). Bodegas Bilbaínas today is one of the most prestigious wineries in the Rioja region, specialising in wines in the Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva categories.

The Rioja winery has 263 hectares of own vineyards. In view of the characteristics of soil and climate, the main red grape variety under cultivation is Tempranillo, although Graciano, Viura and Mazuelo are also grown. The white varieties Viura and Malvasía are used to produce white Rioja. The Viña Pomal estate covers 90 hectares of vineyards. These are located inside the municipality of Haro and less than 2 kilometres from the winery, in one of the town’s most beautiful enclaves, overlooking the Ebro river as it flows downstream through the Conchas de Haro pass.

This Rioja Crianza is made from 100% Tempranillo, it has a rich aromatic bouquet and a supple, elegant, balanced and refreshing mouthfeel.

Twelve months in barrels of American oak (20% of which are new) add the complexity and maturity needed to complete this wine’s expression.
