Located in the Riojan town of Ábalos, Bodegas Fernández Eguiluz was founded in 1989 and has been passed down to siblings Pilar and Carmelo. They are joined by winemaker Carlos Sanchez. Their location in Rioja Alta offers favourable south-facing sites with calcareous soils, ideal for producing wines with great character and elegance.
Often favouring carbonic maceration and stainless steel vessels during the winemaking process, the wines show beautiful vibrancy and fragrant, lifted aromatics that are a departure from the more classic styles of Rioja for which the region is known.
