The winery sits beneath a plant-covered roof, partially underground, allowing energy saving through the force of gravity and thermal inertia in the winemaking process.

A global benchmark in sustainable viticultural architecture

Beronia’s new winery in La Rioja is a peerless architectural milestone in the winemaking world and demonstrates our non-negotiable commitment to sustainability and the environment

Sustainability is integral to our philosophy of producing great wines. From the initial design conception and build of the winery to the geo-thermal temperature control and efficient waste management, every care is taken to preserve nature’s balance.

Self-supplied

with renewable energy

Our eco-friendly Rueda winery sits comfortably among the vineyards, at one with its tranquil surroundings. Grand, glass windows capture maximum sunlight, while the thick, concrete walls and semi-underground construction keep temperatures cool and consistent, vital for the handling and care of our expressive Verdejo wine.

“We worked with the architect right from the start to make sure the winery would embody the ideas regarding sustainability and care for the environment that define Beronia”.
MARIAN SANTAMARÍA
Winemaker, Beronia Rueda
