About the winemaker
Dionisio Ruiz Ijalba planted his first vineyard in 1975 on a former opencast mine. Onto this land, already exhausted, he added some 50 or 60 cm. of poor soil, which came from land clearance, and in this way he reproduced the traditional soils of quality Rioja vineyards, which had low production, typical of the area - land on the hillsides which was shallow and relatively infertile.
At present Viña Ijalba has more than 90 hectares of their own vineyards around Logroño, San Vicente de la Sonsierra nad Valle del Iregua.
