Bodegas y Viñedos Tobelos, founded in 1999, is situated in the municipality of Brinas. This project came to fruition through the ambition of one man, Ricardo Reinoso, the initiator and present development director of this exciting venture. The winery, designed architecturally in a uniquely modern and minimalist style, is set into the hillside that runs down to the Río Ebro, adapting itself to the terrain but breaking away from the classic style of a winery building. The bodega, which borders the boundary of the municipality of Haro separated only by a pathway, is perched on the top of a steep slope with breathtaking views of the vineyards and a promontory of the River Ebro. It is the first bodega you arrive at on entering the denominación of Rioja from the north. Close by you can find other bodegas like Roda, Muga, Tondonia, Rioja Alta and Cune. Brinas is the doorway to La Rioja, a small village of stone buildings with heraldic portals. A truly magical and peaceful place. So we are dealing with a bodega positioned in a magnificent setting in the heart of the very best Rioja Tempranillo vineyards. There are 3 hectares of vineyards adjacent to the bodega and another 15 hectares, directly under their control, belonging to partners of the bodega. The winery was completed in 2003 and the 2002 vintage was the first to be elaborated in the new winery.
