Capitan Fanegas is the personal projec of Mario Ruiz-Clavijo from the historic Bodegas Marques de Arviza in Rioja. The philosophy behind the Capitan Fanegas wines is to make single vineyard expressions of Rioja that refelct and express the sites they come from. The wines are vinos de author; unique representations that are true to the Rioja style. Mario interferes as little as possible during the vinification process and believes these are vinos de guarda, wines that are meant to age.

La Union comes from a single parcel in the La Union village in Rioja that feautres a mixture of red and white clay with sandy soils. All grapes are hand-harvested from vines that average 25 years of age. A blend of 85% Tempranillo and 15% Graciano that is fermented with native yeasts in concrete tanks and aged for 12 months in barrel. Expressive aromas of blackberry, red currants and violets with a fine, silky palate and long, polished finish, enjoy this striking Rioja with grilled lamb chops.
