    The Legacy of Bodegas Amézola de la Mora

The story of Viña Amézola, Criança, begins in the mid-19th century with the Amézola de la Mora family, devoted wine enthusiasts who crafted the brand to produce wines that epitomize the Rioja’s exceptional terroir. Despite devastating setbacks from the infamous phylloxera infestation, the family, spearheaded by Iñigo Amézola de la Mora, resurrected their vineyards in the 1980s, renovating their facilities and tributing their efforts to present the world with premium wines like Viña Amézola, Criança. Currently run by his daughters, María and Cristina, Bodegas Amézola de la Mora has grown from its historic roots, seizing modern techniques without diluting their commitment to age-old winemaking traditions, ensuring their wines’ distinct character is tightly interwoven with the legacy of their land.
