Ramón Bilbao is a Spanish winery located in the Rioja region of northern Spain. The winery was founded in 1924 by Ramón Bilbao Murga, and today it is owned by the family-owned Diego Zamora Group. Ramón Bilbao produces a range of red, white, and rosé wines, with a focus on traditional Rioja grape varieties such as Tempranillo, Graciano, and Mazuelo.
The winery owns over 180 hectares of vineyards, which are located in the Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa sub-regions. The vineyards are planted on slopes and terraces at an altitude of 500-700 meters, and are characterized by a diversity of soils, including clay, limestone, and alluvial soils.
Ramón Bilbao's flagship wine is the Mirto, a red wine made from a blend of Tempranillo grapes from the Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa sub-regions. The wine is aged for 18 months in French oak barrels and is known for its aromas of black fruit, spices, and toasted oak, as well as its well-structured and balanced palate.
In addition to the Mirto, Ramón Bilbao also produces a range of other red wines, including the Reserva, Gran Reserva, and Limited Edition wines, all of which are aged in oak barrels for varying lengths of time.
Ramón Bilbao is committed to sustainable winemaking practices, and they have implemented a number of initiatives to reduce their environmental impact, including the use of renewable energy sources and the implementation of organic farming practices.
