Their Story

“We long held a desire to produce wines in the neighbouring Rioja Alavesa region, as we had loved its landscapes, vines and vines since we were boys. In 2015 our dream became reality with the launch of Viña Zorzal Rioja Tempranillo 2014, after more than 5 years of work on vineyards located between Labastida and San Vicente de la Sonsierra.” — Iñaki Sanz, Xabier Sanz, Mikel Sanz, Rafael Regadera

“Our intrepid Zorzal flies to his neighbor Rioja! Here you can find his new home … We are Inquilinos! (Tenants) El Inquilino Wines is a careful selection of Tempranillo and Grenache grapes in the area of the Najerilla valley. Our goal, as in all our wines, is to produce honest wines with local varieties, minimal intervention, wines that talk about its origin.”
