And Man had to learn from Nature, respect its rhythms and protect Time, humbly accepting its mandate, because this was the only way to produce exceptional fruit. The perfect equilibrium that emerges as the quintessential expression of this unusual, unique, almost magical land..
Our wines are made with a selection of grapes from some of the oldest vineyards in La Rioja and are aged unhurriedly in barrels made of European oaks from the Caucasus, Allier and Nevers.
The surname Pina is directly derived from the name of the village Peñafiel and has been associated with wine for over two millennia dating back to Pre-Roman times.
The Chairman Martine Pina has picked up the baton, putting his family wine-making and grape-growing tradition into an ultra-modern winery, which has left a traditional mark on the international wine-making community.
The proof lays in its wine-grower members who control over 550 hectares of vineyards devoted to Viña Alday and produce grapes of the highest quality.
Values that transcend generations. The ultimate purpose of TEMPOS Viña Alday is to become an example with worldwide prestige of a unique culture based on a continuous striving for excellence, harmony with nature and an unbounded professionalism and devotion to our work. All of this is possible thanks to an exceptional team of people and to a set of principles and values that transcend both past and future generations and light up the path we must follow.
Founded in 1947 in the village of ….. in La Rioja, the winery began its work making wines with grapes from the surrounding area. Today, the third generation of the family has joined the business and we now have two wineries, one in our home village producing Rioja appellation wine and the other in the village of Fuentespina, producing wine from the Ribera del Duero appellation. At Viña Alday, we feel bewitched by the land, its roots, its strength and energy.... We admire its infinite wisdom, allowing it all the time it needs and learning from its life cycles and rhythms. Our greatest ambition is to live side by side with nature, protecting it, looking after it and caring for its every whim, so as to conserve it for the future and enjoy the full taste of its fruit.
When Viña Alday became part of the Pina Alday family in 1947, they laid the foundations for the creation of wine. Since then, business has been growing at a steady solid rate, with new wines from different wine areas, the interest of new consumers from all over the world and the establishment of a strong base for a promising, very successful future.
The just reward for giving it our best shot.
We are driven by our constant eagerness to improve. This is why we tirelessly nourish our knowledge through research, learning and experience. This concern for continuous improvement is possible thanks to the patience, calmness, professionalism and meticulous approach with which we address each challenge.
At Viña Alday, we are careful to steer clear of passing fashions and affectations. Instead, we aim to reach inside to the essence of things, saving what really matters and valuing all that is original and traditional.
To this end, our approach to the future is inspired by rigour and discipline, honesty and integrity, distilling what is genuine and natural so as to be able to learn from the truly authentic.
With unbridled dedication and loyalty, our spirit and commitment is based on the energy, effort, respect and involvement of a team of people who look after every tiny detail with enormous care and attention.
This philosophy underlying our work is a sure reflection of the affection, determination and excitement that drives us on day after day.
