Beronia is famous for its Rioja Alta vineyards, its culinary heritage, and its creative use of barrels. Rioja is segmented into Rioja Alta, Rioja Baja, and Rioja Alavesa, with Beronia situated in Ollauri, the core of Rioja Alta, which has the highest altitude among the three regions. The region is affected by both the Atlantic and Mediterranean climates and possesses a blend of clay and chalky soils.
The winery was founded in 1973 by a group of friends from the Basque country who wanted the best wine to accompany their gastronomic get-togethers (called Txoko in their native Basque). The winery was acquired by Gonzalez Byass in 1982, while some of the original founders still visit the winery to dine as they have done for decades.
