The Benito Family's vineyards are mostly located in the village where their winery is located, in an area of 5 km around Cuzcurrita del Río Tirón. A small part of the vineyard is scattered in the neighboring village of Uruñuela, contributing to the mother's family vineyard. Preserving this ancestral vineyard is part of the legacy received by the last generation. These will be some of the stories shared at the foot of the vineyard, an exceptional opportunity to learn about Rioja grape varieties, explain the vegetative cycle of the vineyard according to the time of year, the work of the winegrower, etc. If the weather is good, tastings can be held in the vineyard with the company of an aperitif and the landscape as an exceptional accomplice. Plan B will be to return to the family winery and finish off the experience by tasting and enjoying the wines produced in Urbina.
