Rioja in three letters


LAN Verdejo, a wine made in tandem

At LAN we're passionate about teamwork, and committed to the origin and to native varieties. After more than ten years working in the D.O. Rueda, our two winemakers have come together to create a vibrant varietal wine that offers a fresh new way to enjoy yourself: LAN Verdejo.

The unique wines of LAN

If choosing a variety, which represents Rioja, it would definitely be Tempranillo. The name comes from “temprano” meaning early, which describes the grapes early ripening characteristic. It is the most widely planted varietal because it is the best adapted to the soils and climate of Rioja.

The growth cycle at Viña Lanciano

Every year, in our Viña Lanciano vineyard we experience the different stages in the vine growth cycle. Weather conditions determine the start of some of the phases and the various tasks that we carry out in the vines.
