With a history of wine-making excellence expanding more than 115 years, Federico Paternina is one of the few pre-phylloxera wineries in Rioja. In 1896, D.Federico Paternina Josué founded the Paternina Wineries in Ollauri, a group of three wineries with around a thousand American oak barrels; in 1922 they took over the bodegas of the Catholic Farming Syndicate Co-operative in Haro. In 1984, the company was taken over by Riojan entrepreneur Marcos Eguizábal Ramírez. Today, thanks to winemaker Carlos Estecha’s exceptional talent and some astute commercial choices Paternina is one of the leading Rioja wineries.
