The Fernandez Gomez family has a history in viticulture that stretches back for more than a century, but it was the vision of the latest generation that first brought their production to the commercial market through the emergence of Bodegas Tierra. With nearly 80 acres of prime vineyard holdings in Rioja Alavesa, some containing original hundred-year-old plantings, it’s not surprising Tierra quickly earned an impressive reputation as an estate grower and producer. Efforts taken by Tierra focus on maintaining grape integrity from vineyard to bottle so true character is maintained; picking is always done by hand, with great care and winemaking never intrusive. Within the stylistic spectrum of Rioja, expect robust, balanced wines that integrate generous barrel maturity with minimal oxidative characteristics.
Just like a book, no bottle of wine should be judged from the outside of the bottle. Through wine tasting classes you may find your new favorite by random chance. Through personal conversation and feedback within a tasting our Sommelier will respond to your taste for other proposed wines of interest.
Are you looking to meet new people? A wine class invites fellow wine enthusiasts to share their reflections resulting in organic conversations. Many great friendships have been formed in La Vid Vinoteca.
