El Coto de Rioja, located in Oyon, was founded in 1970 by a group of winemakers committed to creating a new type of Rioja. Its first bottling was released in 1975. Today, El Coto is the leading brand in Spain and among the top-selling Spanish wines in Europe. Located in La Rioja Alta's village of Cenicero, near the east bank of the Najerilla River (a tributary of the Ebro), is 1,235 acres of estate vineyards. Facing northwest, vineyard soils are mostly ferric clay, sand, and limestone, which contribute structure, power, and elegant minerality, respectively, to the wines.
