The Contador winery
The key to the work at Bodega Contador is the meticulous attention to a host of details in all stages of the production process: from the care of the vineyard soil to the design of the labels.
Most of the vines are conducted in glass, the pruning method traditionally used in La Rioja. The vine growers of Bodega Contador leave a single bud per thumb, to limit production and enhance the quality of the grape.
