BODEGAS LECEA

Regional Winner - Architecture and Landscapes - Bilbao | Rioja

The small winery Bodegas Lecea, without the resources of the large winemakers groups, has carried out, with effort and dedication, an impressive work of recovering abandoned underground wine cellars in Cerrillo Verballe of San Asensio, La Rioja.

The Lecea family has recovered the legacy of the ancestors of the area and promoted an offer of high anthropological value wine tourim. Past generations were anonymous architects who built the caves by hand to keep the wine fresh. They left the great legacy of the popular architecture in natural symbiosis with the landscape using the materials of the place and the construction techniques sanctioned only by the experience. Today, Bodegas Lecea preserves in perfect condition six caves of the sixteenth century, where it keeps its own wine. Every year they organize “the treading of the grape” in an old winepress, an activity that brings us back to the past and attracts more than 3,000 people.
