Vina Herminia Excelsus
Located in the Rioja Baja, at the southeastern end of the Rioja, Viña Herminia belongs to the Luis Caballero group of companies, also owners of Emilio Lustau S.A. in Jerez. Viña Herminia offers a full range of Rioja wines, from vineyards on the slopes of Monte Yerga and Monte Argudo, up to an altitude of 700m, complemented with grapes from the best communes of the Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa. Expert vinification and blending ensures rich, generous, fruity wines, with great natural freshness and appeal. Best of all, the Viña Herminia range is very reasonably priced.
Over the last couple of years, a number of top UK and US commentators, including both Jancis Robinson and Robert Parker, have highlighted Viña Herminia as one of the premier addresses in Rioja for high quality and real value.
