The origins of Bodegas y Viñedos Goméz Cruzado go back to 1886, when Ángel Gómez de Arteche, a nobleman related to the Duke of Moctezuma de Tultengo, decided to start making and bottling his own wine in Haro, in the heart of Rioja Alta. This created an ancient cellar that would make history in Haro and Rioja at the end of the 19th century.
Wine is made here very precisely, with a strong sense of tradition. They pay a lot of attention to the specific characteristics of the different terroirs and their effect on the grape variety concerned. They listen carefully to the people who have worked in the vineyards all their lives. At Goméz Cruzado there is therefore room for the expression of terroir in the different wines.
This deep interest in the potential of the vineyards ensures that the wines excel at every level; both the generic Crianza and the Single Vineyard wines are more than worth every euro.
Traditionally, Goméz Cruzado is also famous for the white Rioja's. Where making the blanco variant is seen by many bodegas as an extra, it is a real tradition here and a large part of the production (about 25%) is reserved for white wines.
