The most expensive wine produced in Rioja. Bought from the cellars of Paternina winery in 2009. Extremely good storage conditions. Fully mature and therefore well now, or cellar for 20-25 years.

Bottle size: Bottle (0.75L)
Number of bottles: 2
Region: Rioja
Year: 1968

Bought in Paternina winery in May 2009.
Stored in private cellar up to today.

A limited edition of 8.250 bottles. Vinified for 12 months in big wooden vats, from the founding time of the winery, without temperature control, and then poured to cask. aAged for 84 months, 7 years. Racked 14 times, once every 6 months, using the traditional cask-to-cask method. Marketed by purchase order directly from the cellars.

Conde de los Andes was the most expensive wine in Rioja: 14.000 pesetas in 1982 (about 84 euros), four times more expensive than a Tondonia 1970 Grva, double than 890 Grva La Rioja Alta or Castillo Ygay, and just a little bit less than Vega Sicilia Único. This wine was so expensive for Spanish people that it was hardly ever on sale in Spain itself.

*** Shipment made with special wine box certified by UPS and DHL.
