Viña Ardanza has a good reason to celebrate. New York’s Eleven Madison Park, number one in the 2017 list of The World's 50 Best Restaurants, just included the Reserva made by La Rioja Alta, S.A. in its exclusive list of thirteen international red wines offered by the glass in this temple to gastronomy.
After a rigorous tasting process, the team of sommeliers led by the Wine Director Cedric Nicaise has selected, from among the wines of La Rioja Alta, S.A. that Eleven Madison Park has listed in its menu for years, this emblematic Rioja as only wine by the glass in the Tempranillo category, perfect to pair with the acclaimed creations of chef Daniel Humm.
The choice of Viña Ardanza by a restaurant of Eleven Madison Park’s standing corroborates the predilection of American patrons for a wine that has already spent several years occupying a place of honour on the podium of favourite Spanish brands, according to a poll published annually by the renowned magazine Wine&Spirits. La Rioja Alta, S.A. also stands out as one of the fifty most popular wineries in the world among the diners of America’s top restaurants.
Viña Ardanza is made with a selection of Tempranillo (80%) and Garnacha grapes with an outstandingly pleasant structure, balance, finesse and a characteristic elegance. Made exclusively in the best vintages, it also stands out for its great ageing potential, assuring many years of enjoyment.
