Bodegas Tritium


The history of Bodegas Tritium was born out of a personal affection for old vineyards. A love that today allows us to have eight hectares of vines, ranging in age from 90 to 120 years old, the oldest were planted in 1903. These are estates that were never part of the two great mass grubbings in La Rioja: the first in the 60s and 70s, encouraged by the mechanisation of winegrowing tasks, and the second, related to the arrival of multinationals in the sector in the 80s and 90s.

In the 60s and 70s, in order to allow mechanised work and facilitate the entry of the tractor, vineyards were uprooted, unlike in France, where winegrowers adapted the tractor to the width of the traditional vineyards. On the other hand, the arrival of large groups in Rioja resulted in a strong demand for grapes within the Rioja Designation of Origin. This, together with good grape prices (with hardly any differentiation in quality), led to the replacement of old vines (with lower production) with new ones. The loss of vineyard and winemaking heritage was very high, for the sake of higher yields.
