Familia Chavarri - Exciting New Spanish Arrivals

Familia Chavarri

Established in 1882, four generations of winegrowers have loved and respected the land of their ancestors. Based on the foundations laid by the founder Francisco Chávarri, Familia Chavarri acquired the first number on the Rioja Alavesa Bottling Register.

We were lucky enough to get our hands on some of Familia Chavarri's iconic Larchago wine series, the most representative brand of their D.O.Ca Rioja wines. The vineyards are located in the municipalities of Laguardia, Elciego and Lapuebla de Labarca, the most emblematic areas of the Rioja Alavesa sub-area.

The following wines are available to order through the portal now!

Larchago Blanco 2018

This bright white is made from 100% Viura - referred to as the most important white grape of Rioja.
