Bodegas Taron is a cooperative based in the northernmost part of Rioja Alta, with 200 families owning 700 hectares of vines around 4 small towns: Cuzcurrita de Rio Tiron, Sajazarra, Villaseca and Tirgo. These families decided that since they share the same landscape and culture, they would benefit from pooling together their vineyards and knowledge to create one Bodega focused on creating high quality Rioja`s. Viticulture and historical heritage are the axes of the wine activity in Bodegas Tarón. A privileged environment of Rioja Alta: century-old vineyards, Romanesque churches and medieval castles outline our landscape.
