About Bodegas Artuke
Situated in the heart of the renowned Rioja Alavesa region, Bodegas Artuke is a celebrated family run winery steeped in history, tradition, and a passion for the vine. Created by the grandfather of the current owners, Arturo and Kike de Miguel Blanco, the winery is a grounded ode to artisanal craftsmanship and sustainable viticulture.
Perched atop its own picturesque hillside, Bodegas Artuke overlooks its 32 hectares of vineyards, crisscrossed with low stone walls and dotted with ancient olive trees. The vineyards specialise in growing Spanish varietals, with the majority of the vines being devoted to the classic Rioja choice, Tempranillo. That, along side the highly-prized Graciano grape, forms the heart of the myriad of exquisite wines produced by Bodegas Artuke.
The winery operates on the principles of organic and sustainable farming; nothing but organic fertiliser is used in the vineyards. The family's dedication to the land is clear. Purity of the grape and transparency in the process are paramount to every bottle produced at Bodegas Artuke. From the vine to the glass, the de Miguel Blanco family ensures disease-resistant vines, minimum intervention winemaking, and low sulphur levels.
Inside, the winery is a beautiful display of the age-old techniques that make Rioja so iconic. Oak barrels are lined up against the stone walls; they’re used for fermenting the wine, allowing it to slowly develop deep and complex aromas over time. Despite the traditional setting, Bodegas Artuke is not afraid to experiment. Signature blends are crafted, giving each vintage a unique profile.
Bodegas Artuke offers a captivating experience for any wine connoisseur. It’s the perfect blend of history, rustic beauty, and expert craftsmanship. Few wineries uphold quite the same level of commitment to sustainable practices and vineyard preservation, making this winery a delightful must-visit.
