Winegrower and oenologist Roberto Oliván always follows his own vision and makes sure his wines do not tailor to one specific style. Perhaps that is why the Wine Advocate taster Luis Gutiérrez calls him one of the leaders of the new Rioja revolution, or the Master of Wine Tim Atkin named him Young Winemaker of the Year in 2015.
Based in the small village of Viñaspre in northern Spain, Roberto produces terroir wines in a traditional hand-crafted way which express the strong personality of one of the toughest areas of the Rioja Alavesa region. He runs just over 10 hectares of vines split into 30 small plots which are vinified separately. The time he spends in the vineyards paying meticulous care and attention to the plants produces excellent grapes which he transforms into modern yet traditional-tasting wines.
