Decanter, one of the most relevant wine magazines has published in March issue a special article about the 50 top Riojas. Viña El Pisón has obtained 99 points and has been chosen as the best option with 99 points.
This extensive article is written by Tim Atkin and Sarah Jane Evens, both Masters of wine and renowned wine journalists.
In Atkin’s words, Viña El Pisón is always one of Rioja`s – indeed Spain’s – best wines. Also he mention its origin, a 2.4 single vineyard in Laguardia, Alava, planted in 1945.
This legendary Single Vineyard wine already got the desired 100 points by Robert Parker and The Wine Advocate in the 2004 vintage and this top wine continues collecting more awards from specialised prescriptors and media.
Since 2009 vintage ARTADI winery has been released other three single vineyards wines from its exceptional plots around Laguardia ARTADI El Carretil, ARTADI La Poza de Ballesteros and ARTADI Valdeginés.
Last December 2015 ARTADI left the D.O.Ca. Rioja so, from that date onwards the wines are labelled as wine from Alava, Spain, without any mention to the Rioja appellation.
ARTADI´s history is full of national and international awards and has achieved a renowned reputation since it was founded in 1985. Its trajectory has always been linked to the quality and the traditions of their ancestors, passion and respect to the vineyard.
