The wine

What does this wine taste like?

Via the retronasal passage, toasty notes are evident straight after the first sip.

Bodegas Ramón Bilbao

Bodegas Ramón Bilbao

Bodegas Ramón Bilbao is an excellent example of pure Rioja traditions combined with the latest innovations in winemaking. The winery came into being in 1924 although its founder Don Ramón Bilbao Murga had been working in the wine trade in Haro since 1896.
