Tale Of The Grape Vintner's Story

Antigua Usanza works with passion and dedication in the municipality of San Vicente de la Sonsierra in La Rioja to offer the best wines. In Antigua Usanza they create an entire universe around wine.

They conceive each bottle of wine as unique, an authentic work of art able to satisfy the highest expectations. In their cellar they transmit all the care, attention an tradition of their know-how into the wines they produce. Without any doubt, the best reward for them is the confidence of people who choose quality wines, such as those produced by Antigua Usanza,

Their cellar, more than 15 metres underground, has borrowed 1,200 square metres from the rock to hold their best wines. It is an enclave in which the impermeability of the rock, its great hardness and beauty when cut, create a privileged space for maturing wine. Within these solid walls, their wines absorb all the natural richness of the land where they are born. Their wine is defined, more than anything, by the land in which it is born.

Antigua Usanza is fortunate in being exceptionally well located in the heart of La Rioja Alta, the region that has always been considered birthplace of prestigious wines.

Like a crossroads, the cellar is in the municipality of San Vicente de la Sonsierra, surrounded by landscape with strong contrast. To north of the region one will find the craggy peaks of Sierra Cantabria, while in the south, the river Ebro flowa easily through the extensive plains.

The geographical diversity of the area in which Antigua Usanza’s vineyards are located provides a varied climate that offers ideal conditions for vine growing. The clayey-calcareous soils of this area add distinction to their wines.
