La Social Partidas de la Granja

Rioja

La Social is a new and eminently approachable release from Telmo Rodriguez, made with grapes from trusted suppliers who follow Telmo's vine growing philosophy, as well as a small portion of estate grapes. Their aim with La Social is to produce a completely pure and authentic expression of Rioja - a delicious, unpretentious, perfect everyday wine to enjoy in a social setting. The result is an extremely fresh and lively wine, with juicy plum fruit and traces of dark chocolate and violet. 

The fruit for La Social is 100% hand-harvested in the villages of Lanciego de Alava and Labastida, both located in Rioja Alavesa. Unlike modern vineyards in Rioja today, where Tempranillo dominates plantings, many vines are trellised, and varieties are planted in separate rows, these vineyards are a field blend of Tempranillo, Graciano and Garnacha, all trained as bush vines - a throwback to the way Rioja vineyards were planted in the past.
