Altun Albiker Roble 2017 

José Antonio Martínez, a perfectionist, began selecting vineyards in 1989. Since then, he has been working and perfecting incessantly. Today he is very well known and respected throughout Spain’s La Rioja. Jose’s personality has definitely rubbed off on his sons Alberto and Sergio, as they begin to influence Altun’s wine production. We can’t wait to see what the future brings from Altun! 
 

The Winery (La Bodega)
