The winery "Bodegas Riojanas" is located in the municipality of Cenicero 20 kilometers from Lograño in the center of the Spanish Rioja sub-area Rioja Alta
, It was founded in 1890 by the Artacho and Carreras families, and has been the sole property of the Artacho family since 1933. Extensive improvements in the cellar and vineyards were completed in 1990 with great financial expense. The company's own vineyards cover 300 hectares of vineyards, which are mainly planted with the varieties Tempranillo, Mazuelo, Graciano, Garnacha Tinta, Viura, Malvasía de Rioja and Cabernet Sauvignon. Grapes are also bought in. Around three million kilograms of grapes are processed every year. Around 24,000 oak barrels are available for expansion. Among others, the red wine brands Albina, Chanchales and Puerta Vieja (all from Tempranillo, Mazuelo, Graciano), Monte Real (Tempranillo) and Peñamonte (Tinta de Toro = archetype of Tempranillo) are produced. Around 40% of production is exported.
