The winery "Bodegas Bilbaínas" is located in the city of Haro in the heart of the Spanish Rioja sub-region Rioja Alta. It was founded in 1859 by the French wine company Savignon Frères & Cie. It received its current name in 1901, when it was acquired by a group of entrepreneurs from the eponymous Bilbao. In 1925 the company became a royal purveyor to the court with the brand "Ederra Crianza". Finally, in 1997 the bodega was bought by the Cava House Codorníu and underwent a general overhaul from the vineyards to the winery. The oenologist José Hidalgo is responsible for the vinification. The vineyards cover 256 hectares, mainly planted with the Rioja standard varieties Tempranillo, Garnacha Tinta, Graciano and Mazuelo. There are 19,000 barrique barrels available for ageing. The product range includes the brands "La Vicalanda", "Vendimia Especial", "Viña Pomal" and "Viña Zaco". Lovers of "Viña Pomal" were allegedly Winston Churchill (1874-1965) and Salvador Dali (1904-1989). A cava (sparkling wine) called "Royal Carlton" is also produced. About 200,000 cases (2.4 million bottles) of wine are produced annually.
