Bodegas LAN (Spain)
Year…1972. Bodegas LAN is founded and named after the initials of the 3 Provinces in the Rioja Designation of Origin: Logrono (now La Rioja), Alava and Navarra. It is located in the heart of Rioja Alta which is synonymous with tradition and prestige.
The careful selection of raw materials and the most suitable oak for each type of wine lays the foundation for the creation of crianza wines with a marked personality and an established and growing international reputation.
LAN… is solely engaged in the production of crianza red wines, using Rioja’s native Tempranillo as the main variety, as this is the ideal grape to produce red wines that are subsequently aged in the cask and bottle.

The vineyard occupies an area of 72 hectares, in which the climate, river and soil endow already exceptional grapes with a unique personality. Vines as old as 60 years are used to make our top-of-the-range wines: Viña Lanciano, Culmen and Lan Edición Limitada.
