Now a bit of history on the wineries that will be introduced during the tasting:
Since 1998 they have been In the heart of the Ribera del Duero. On their website you can find all the information needed about the location, wines and winery, but what you may not see right away is that Tarsus makes its wines from its own selected terroir looking to extract only excellence and the best of the autochthonous varieties for their drinkers.
The processes of harvesting and vinification are carried out in parts and under the strict supervision of its enologist, Teresa Rodríguez, who ensures that the wines have deep aromas, high concentration and aging potential. A fun fact about their name Tarsus is that it is the name of a city in Asia Minor also known as the Cradle of Wine Civilization.
The history of the Bodegas Azpilicueta goes back to 1881 when Félix Azpilicueta Martínez created the winery in a small vineyard in Fuentmayor and became a pioneer winemaker.
One of the most important figures in the history of Rioja wine is Felix Azpilicueta Martínez, who, with his dynamism took over a small vineyard in Fuentmayor and goes down in history as the innovator who allowed the whole area to participate in the first exports of Rioja wines.
This has led this winery to become a well-known brand and one of the most prestigious in Spain.
These types of stories are not far from what Masia La Mota represents, an agricultural property where its owners have turned it into an ideal spot for people looking to rest, enjoy small pleasures, connect with nature and learn some history of Spain.
