BODEGAS CERROLAZA owns 60 hectares of vineyards, which have been added to the family heritage that has been growing generation after generation. These estates are distributed in several areas between La Grajera (Logroño), Yagüe-El Cortijo and Hornos de Moncalvillo, all of them located in La Rioja, land and cradle of great wines.
At BODEGAS CERROLAZA we divide the vineyards into different plots according to grape variety, age, type of soil, orientation, etc. in order to separate them during the harvest and subsequent winemaking process.
The grapes are harvested by hand, using 15-kilo boxes for the highest quality vineyards, from which the best wines of the winery are obtained, and 30-kilo baskets and support grape-sackers for the rest of the vineyards.
We carry out traditional agriculture, optimizing and searching for the most exclusive varieties that best adapt to each of the soils and climatology. By pampering our vineyards, we obtain magnificent fruits that will result in excellent wines.
HEIRS OF THE FAMILY TRADITION
The Cerrolaza family had its own vineyards, which have been growing generation after generation with the acquisition of new lands to expand the legacy and have a sufficient volume of vineyards to produce our wines without having to depend on external growers.
In this way we control the entire wine cycle, from cultivation, from the field, to the table.

CRADLE OF OUR WINES
The winery has a large winemaking hall and the most advanced winemaking technology, with an infrastructure of stainless steel tanks of different sizes depending on the type of wine to be made.
In the aging cellar rest 1000 French and American oak barrels with a capacity of 225 l. each. One third of the barrels are renewed every year, so there will always be one third of completely new barrels, one third of one year old barrels and one third of two years old barrels.
Once the barrel aging is finished, the wines are bottled and transferred to metal crates where they will remain for the time necessary for the perfect integration of the fruit and the wood.
Both the barrel cellar and the bottle cellar are air-conditioned for a perfect control of temperature and light, so that the wines rest in optimal conditions.
