The property surrounds a house almost 200 years old, built on top of some old drafts from the 16th century. The wines are made exclusively from vines from the estate vineyard, located in a meander of the Ebro River in Laserna. Contino wines are not produced every year, only when the harvest is considered excellent, seeking quality over quantity. This same philosophy of quality and exclusivity, is lived in the spaces of the winery and especially in the open spaces for events. For groups with little time we propose a guided tour of the winery, an introduction to the Contino world, visiting the old cellars and the unique vineyard that embraces the estate. To round off the event, there will be a tasting of some of our wines, which we will enjoy accompanied by an aperitif from La Rioja."
