Bodegas Taron

Bodegas Taron

Until recently Bodegas Taron was a co-op so they take grapes from 700 hectares, nearly all in the Rioja Alta. Recent investment has resulted in a bright, modern winery, a new barrel hall that smells of clean new oak, and lots of new stainless steel vats.

The latter come in various sizes to give plenty of flexibility, and there are some old concrete ones too. Manager Gonzalo Salazar is keen and progressive. The wines are good value, have a comfortable, traditional feel to them and crucially seem to be aged a little longer so we have access to more mature styles.
