In 1881, Félix Azpilicueta founded Bodegas Azpilicueta, today known as Bodegas AGE, in Fuenmayor, right in the heart of the Rioja Alta.
Over a century later, Bodegas AGE reflects the efforts of several generations of dedication to the production and ageing of prestigious Rioja wines. The vineyards mainly consist of grapes of the Tempranillo, Mazuelo and Graciano varieties.
There are 165 vats for the vinification process, and the total capacity in terms of reception of grapes is 7,000,000 kg. Of the 30,000 casks, 70% are made of American oak and 30% from French oak. The bodega's bottle cellar has capacity to store 2,000,000 bottles.Read More
