Gomez Cruzado

Guardian of Rioja's Winemaking Heritage

Founded over a century ago, Gomez Cruzado embraces the philosophy that great wines are born from a profound understanding of the vineyard's character. Meticulously tended vines thrive in the Rioja Alta’s ideal microclimate, benefitting from the balance between warm days and cool nights, imparting complexity and depth to the grapes. The winemaking team at Gomez Cruzado employs both time-honoured techniques and contemporary expertise, fostering an environment where tradition and modernity coalesce.

Gomez Cruzado's commitment to quality is unwavering. From the moment the grapes are hand-harvested at their peak of ripeness, to the delicate sorting process, and the meticulous aging in oak barrels sourced from the best coopers, every step is undertaken with an artisanal dedication. This devotion to detail results in wines that possess a unique sense of place, reflecting the terroir's nuances while offering a modern elegance.

In the winery, Gomez Cruzado are constantly making incremental improvements such as reducing their use of sulphur, using more recyclable materials and reducing their energy and water waste through investment in energy-efficient practices. Their vineyard efforts are centred around preserving old bush-trained vines from which they can produce exceptional wines, strongly rooted in their terroir.

The winery's portfolio exemplifies the diverse expressions of Rioja's varietals. From the classic Tempranillo, with its depth and structure, to the nuanced Garnacha and Graciano, each wine showcases the artistry of the winemaker and the distinct characteristics of the region's soil. Whether it's their refined Reserva, their expressive Pancrudo or their opulent Honorables, Gomez Cruzado's wines invite enthusiasts to embark on a sensory journey through Rioja's captivating flavours.

Gomez Cruzado Winery stands as a guardian of Rioja's winemaking heritage, embodying the essence of a region celebrated for its wines. With a blend of tradition, innovation, and an unwavering passion for quality, the winery continues to craft exceptional wines that pay homage to the past while embracing the possibilities of the future.
