With an annual production of less than 200,000 bottles, Gómez Cruzado is the boutique winery of el Barrio de la Estación. Our project brings together all the ingredients necessary for creating wines of extremely high quality: classified origin and marked typicity, dedicated to the fine style of Haro’s Barrio de la Estación.
The origins of Bodegas y Viñedos GÓMEZ CRUZADO date back to 1886, when Ángel Gómez de Arteche, a nobleman related to the Duke of Moctezuma de Tultengo, decided to start making and bottling his own wine in Haro, in the heart of Rioja Alta. Thus, a century-old cellar was born which would go on to make history in Haro and Rioja during the late 19th century.
After its founding, GÓMEZ CRUZADO was bought in 1916 by Ángel and Jesús Gómez Cruzado, both natives of Rioja, for whom today´s winery is named. There have been many investors over the years. At the beginning of the new millenium, the winery changed hands to the Baños family: the current owners, who hail from Badarán and also have ties to Mexico, where they currently reside. Thus, the winery maintains its family-business style.
At present GÓMEZ CRUZADO is run by the leadership team of David González and Juan Antonio Leza, two young Riojan winemakers and viticulture technicians with over a decade of experience as consultants for significant projects in different regions. David and Juan Antonio have been advising the company since 2008 and today it is their primary passion.
Six wines comprise Gómez Cruzado’s primary collection: Blanco, Crianza, Vendimia Seleccionada, Reserva, Gran Reserva and Honorable.
In parallel, the winery develops a Terroir Selection with village wines, faithful to their terroir and the know-how of locals from the most remarkable areas, selected from a DO as vast and diverse as Rioja. This project is rooted in the landscape and peasantry of these virtuous region.
