La Rioja Alta, S.A. acquires historic Rioja Santiago winery facilities
La Rioja Alta, S.A. is the new owner of the facilities of the historic Rioja Santiago winery in Haro’s Station District. The recent acquisition provides the firm that makes Viña Ardanza with buildings on the banks of the Tirón covering a total surface area of more than 5,300 m3.
Guillermo de Aranzabal, President of La Rioja Alta, S.A., said he was "very happy and excited about this operation on which we have been working for several months" and that "it allows us to continue growing inside our beloved Station District and, in addition, to do it in a strategic location, as it is at the Haro entrance of this iconic district, with thousands of visitors from all over the world passing in front of it every year."
Regarding the possible use of the new facilities, Aranzabal said that “it is still too early to determine and we do not have any immediate projects. We will be working on a development plan that will, of course, complement the wine and wine tourism activities that we usually carry out in our century-old winery.” The president of La Rioja Alta, S.A., went on to say that “what is really important, is our decisive, long-term commitment to the Haro Station District, the cradle of Rioja wine recovering the buildings and spaces of a historic house, founded in Haro in 1870, which was one of the three oldest wineries in Rioja.”
