With more than 50 years of experience in the wine sector, the Sonsierra cooperative (in San Vicente De La Sonsierra, La Rioja) is dedicated to the production of a wide variety of wines with Rioja designation of Origin.
In 1962, a group of winegrowers came together to create in the municipality of San Vicente De La Sonsierra (La Rioja) a cooperative to produce their own wines. This is how Bodegas Sonsierra was born, considered the first cooperative to market D.O.Ca Rioja wines made in the area of La Rioja Alta.
Fruit of the union of these winegrowers, Sonsierra today has more than 510 hectares of vineyards located in the privileged location of Rioja Alta, with vines between 20 and 130 years old. This area is characterized by its clay-calcareous soils and its microclimate, ideal for the cultivation of varieties such as Tempranillo or Viura, the main ones used in Bodegas Sonsierra.
The cooperative has fully equipped facilities in which all the winemaking processes are carried out, adding the traditional and manual work of the vineyard with the latest technologies in the cellar to obtain excellent quality wines.
The wide variety of wines produced in Bodegas Sonsierra has a unique personality and identity that they acquire thanks to factors such as terroir and climate. Using Tempranillo tinto, Tempranillo blanco and Viura, a large selection of monovarietal wines is created that are divided into red, white or rosé, and young, reservas or crianzas.
Innovation is something that has characterized the Sonsierra Cooperative since its creation, and is one of its hallmarks even today. This is something that can be seen, for example, in the production of wines that have managed to stand out within the oenology sector with awards such as the silver medal at the International Wine & Spirit Competition in 2018, or the diamond in wine and women in 2020.
We are talking about the Perfume of Sonsierra, a 100% Tempranillo broth that has been made with the fruits of the best quality vineyard of the Sonsierra winery. It is a red wine that stands out for its blend of fruity aromas with coffee fragrances, and for the visual intensity thanks to its powerful reddish color.
