Albina Essencia is the result of maximum selection, care, affection, patience, commitment, ambition, humility, effort, enthusiasm, confidence ... It comes from 17 small plots, 16 from Tempranillo and one from Graciano, all of them with ages over 60 years and very low yields.
With regard to the Gran Reserva Limited Edition 1998, it is the first Monte Real that Bodegas Riojanas produces exclusively with the Tempranillo variety. Vines planted more than 40 years ago in the El Monte farm, close to the village of Cenicero, at 430 meters altitude, and with clay-calcareous soil and abundant pebbles.
Acción contra el Hambre - One of the effects of climate change is hunger. The forecasts indicate that natural disasters, desertification and floods will be more present and will be of greater magnitude in the short term.
The countries most affected by hunger are also the most affected by extreme weather conditions.
And they will also suffer the most from the effects of climate change.
The most affected region will be Sub-Saharan Africa, where the yield of rainfed crops is expected to drop by up to 50% in the coming years.
This is why we have chosen this excellent and most deserving charity to partner with and hope to raise much-needed funds to further their charitable work. Please bid generously.
