Bodegas LAN's honesty is embodied in our wines since the winery's foundation in 1972.

Bodegas LAN is full of meaning. The name itself is an acronym based on the initials of each of the three provinces that form the D.O.Ca. Rioja: LogroƱo (currently part of La Rioja), Alava and Navarra.

LAN is Rioja in three letters. Each of our wines shows respect for the land it comes from.

LAN means respect for the history of this land.

One of my favorite Spanish wines

"Let it breathe and taste how it develops from the first sip. Full bodied, no tartness at all. Delightful!"
