Stored in private cellar up to today.

Only 1 bottle available.

This is one of the rarest wines I've ever seen. In fact, the seal of Rioja was not printed on the label. It means that this bottle is a pre-Rioja wine: produced before the creation of the Regulatory Council Rioja and the Denomination of Origin region in 1925.

There is no much information available about this wine. A very limited production was vinified in 1906, just a few years after the advent of the phylloxera plague in Rioja (1901). and it was supposed to be bottled gradually in the course of the second half of the 30's. The outbreak of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) stopped it. The wine was not bottled and it remained in wooden vat until mid-'40s and then 35 more years in cask.

Reserved by the owners to be bottled in 1970 and cellared in the old winery racks in Haro to celebrate the 90th anniversary of Bodegas Gomez Cruzado (1886-1976). Those bottles were never placed on the market and given only bottle by bottle to loyal customers.

*** Shipment made with special wine box certified by UPS and DHL.
