Lecea

Country:

Spain

Rioja

Region:

In the 16th century our ancestors built these cave cellars excavated in the rock to make and store the wine, and since then our family has continued to elaborate in the cellars of the Bodegas in San Asensio. Our town is located in the heart of La Rioja Alta, at the top of a hill overlooking the Ebro river and Najerilla Valley. Don Rufino Lecea began bottling under the family name in the 1980's. Today, his son Luis Alberto, is at the helm with a collection of 5 generations family members, all continuing this great family history legacy.
In addition to continuing to focus on development of wide range of wines, our family is also committed to wine tourism and organizes numerous activities where visitors can experience our winemaking tradition firsthand.
“16th century winery with more than 500 years of antiquity. More than five generations dedicated to the cultivation of the vine and the elaboration of our own wines.”
