Holding an event in an openwork is a gesture of support for the historical heritage of La Rioja and its sustainability. To do this, nothing better than to go into the Barrio de Bodegas de San Asensio. Here, the Lecea family cares for and preserves four cellars dug into the rock more than 500 years ago. Tasting their wines in this environment will provide guests with a unique approach to wine culture.
About the winery
A winery that combines modern and traditional winemaking and shows its work and effort every day with visits to anyone interested in making it, as well as knowing and tasting its wines directly from the vats.
Family winery that still preserves its young wines in concrete tanks and ages its wines in French and American oak barrels.
It has more than 200 meters of underground caves where the degree of humidity and its constant temperature make it the ideal place for the repose of wines.
Every year, in Bodegas Lecea, a Feast of the Grazing of the Grape takes place. A weekend in which its most precious terroir is made, the "Corazón de Lago" wine, handmade wine of carbonic maceration that after 15 years of fermentation in the old wine presses is stepped on with the feet by everyone who approaches those days.
It also has a large dining room for groups that offers a traditional Rioja menu, as well as several tourist activities that make this family winery an interesting enotouristic bet.
