Overview

The Grays Wine team are always on the lookout for your next wine discovery. Spain is no exception and we thought we’d start with Rioja. The Rioja wine region can be described as 'Spain in a glass'.

Rioja is made from Tempranillo grapes or a blend of varieties (with Tempranillo the dominant grape). Tempranillo is known for its structure and tannins. This is a wine perfect for a drinker who loves Cabernet but is also looking for the dominant cherry flavor that’s often present in a wine like Pinot Noir. The Spaniards are very proud of the indigenous Tempranillo grape because they have been making it into wine for over 2,000 years.

Transport yourself to Rioja with a glass of these Grays exclusive wines and some lovely thin slices of Jamon Serrano (the Spanish version of Prosciutto) and chunks of Manchego cheese. Yum! Simon – GraysWine Buyer

A fine collection of Spanish Red for you to sample with family and friends.

Winery Profile

At one of the highest points in Rioja Alavesa, in the village of Elvillar de Álava, the Meruelo family created Bodegas Heredad de Baroja in 1964. The winemaking cellar itself was built with a single purpose in mind: turning top-quality Tempranillo grapes into classic expressions of elegant Rioja Alavesa wine.

The Meruelo Family

Way back in the 1790s, Ribera del Duero had double the number of hectares of vineyards now planted. Fernando Meruelo (born 1953) is the third generation of a family of winemakers. He was born in Ribera del Duero and his Great-grandparents owned vineyards for centuries. In the 1970s the family moved from Ribera to the heart of Rioja Alavesa, where his Father was working as an oenologist for the regions´ leadings producers. When Fernando finished studying oenology, he joined his brother Tony Meruelo - the Chief Winemaker - and founded Bodegas Heredad de Baroja in 1982, so named because they both are keen on Pio Baroja, one of Spain´ s most awarded poets and playwright’s. Fernando´s dream was always to grow old vines and make premium wines under his own brand. After studying he briefly consulted other producers, but the pursuit of this dream and the challenge to keep on the Meruelo´s tradition led him to found Heredad de Baroja – a brand focused on the traditional Rioja style.
