Bodega Akutain

Bodega Akutain is a small family-owned winery (ca. 40 years of experience) producing classic and exclusive red wines (with D.O.Ca. Rioja.) with high quality and in limited quantities.

Château Style

The entire production comes exclusively from own-property vineyards located around the winery in the municipality of Haro (Rioja Alta area of D. O. Rioja).

Rioja Alta

This is one of the most exclusive areas in the D.O.Ca. Rioja (with a big concentration of vineyards in high altitude areas, reaching up to 650 meters) and Bodega Akutain is one of the pioneers in the display of “Rioja Alta” on its labels for more than 25 years (since then complying with all the requirements for that, coming 100% of its grapes and production from this area).

I have the privilege of being at the forefront of a beautiful family project, developing it so it outlasts in the long term, respecting tradition, seeking the highest quality standards and responding to the new challenges presented by the future.

Our Wines

We classify the different wines produced by Bodega Akutain in two large families, Akutain Classic and Akutain Selection.

Akutain Selection wines are limited editions where every single bottle is numbered.

Akutain Selection

The family of wines Akutain Selection is made up of different very special wines that we like to produce when it is possible and when the characteristics of the grape allow it.

Always respecting the traditional winemaking techniques in Rioja, they are “very exclusive” wines that we spoil. They get an almost obsessive attention, and we market them in very short and numbered production lots of about 1,000 bottles.
