Barón de Ley is a family-owned winery located in Spain’s most celebrated wine region, Rioja, a privileged terroir to farm and craft premium quality wines.
Housed in a centuries-old monastery, where the monks made wine more than 500 years ago, Barón de Ley was founded in 1985 as a ground-breaking project in the DOCa Rioja: a vineyard-focused winery inspired by the French châteaux.
Honouring our brand name, de ley, which is the Spanish expression for legit, at Barón de Ley we take care of every little detail to offer in every bottle an excellent, trustworthy wine. A genuinely good Rioja.

For this wine we use Garnacha Tinta from our vineyards in Finca Los Almendros, one of our estates in the Rioja Oriental subregion. We select specific plots to craft this rosé and the grapes are picked early to ensure the wine's fresh profile is guaranteed. The viticulture process aims to find the ultimate balance between freshness and complexity.
Hand harvest of this grape protects its integrity. Direct and light pressing of the whole grapes, including the stems, is a natural extraction process, known as teardrop or lágrima in Spanish. This ensures minimum contact between the must and the skins, hence the resulting pale pink colour, as well as the freshness and long finish, characteristic of this wine.
