|Located in the Rioja Baja, at the southeastern end of the Rioja, Viña Herminia belongs to the owners of Emilio Lustau. They offer a full range of Rioja wines, from vineyards on the slopes of Monte Yerga and Monte Argudo, up to an altitude of 700m. Together with the warmer climate, this ensures rich, generous, fruity wines of enormous appeal. Respected Australian winemaker David Morrison is now involved, and his influence on quality is immediately evident in outstanding 2001 Excelsus. Best of all, the Viña Herminia range is very reasonably priced.
