Territorio Rioja Alta Ábalos

Puelles Territory

It is impossible to separate the history of the winery and the family from the history of the territory, so the visit is part of a tour of the main wine heritage resources in ábalos, a town in the Sonsierra region of La Rioja, ancestrally dedicated to vineyards. We will visit the vineyard, the old wine presses, the old town of Ábalos and we will finish the visit at the winery with some tapas and wine tasting. If the occasion arises, we can continue the meeting with a Riojan lunch.

Sobre la bodega

The Puelles family has lived in Ábalos for longer than anyone can remember, and their winemaking tradition goes back just as far. The current generation, the brothers Jesús and Félix Puelles, have enlarge the Molino (Mill) Estate and converted it into a lovely wine cellar, standing alongside the old 17th century water mill which the family bought from the town council in 1844. This Tempranillo-planted, single vineyard bodega follows organic growing methods and produces and ages the wine with the utmost care and attention, before bottling them as an "Estate Wine" under the "El Molino de Puelles" label.

This family winery of wine growers sells 60% in Spain directly from the winery and 40% goes to export.

In addition to making wines, they were pioneers in wine tourism and they organize guided tours and didactic tastings.
