Born in 1889 to a prominent family from Rioja, Herminia had the privilege of an education that formed her ability for critical thinking and developed her appreciation for learning.
Herminia married a winemaker, Joaquin, and started a family together. She firmly believed in the importance of community and gave generously of her knowledge, efforts and time, by granting access to education to the children and women of her village.
Though Herminia passed away in 1944, her legacy lives on through the countless people she empowered to live fuller and richer lives. In 1949 her husband Joaquin, descendant from a long winemaking lineage, founded the winery in her honor to share her story with the world.
Now more than 70 years later, at Bodegas Viña Herminia we continue to make modern, bold, and pioneering Rioja wines that represent Herminia’s essence as we carry on her legacy.
A wine to honor a woman, the feisty, nonconformist and determined Herminia. She labored tirelessly in favor of her community questioning and challenging the established norms of her time. Charismatic, committed, a pioneer.
Herminia, the woman that inspired Bodegas Viña Herminia.
Beautiful bright cherry color. Very fresh and fruity, with delicate vanilla nuances. Round and smooth on the palate, with soft pleasant tannin. This wine is carefully matured in our cellars for four months.
A memorable wine meant to inspire your amazing stories and create unforgettable moments.
