Artuke is a small winery located in Baños de Ebro, a village in Rioja Alavesa. In 1991, Roberto de Miguel decided to move away from bulk wine production onto bottled wine. Now his children Arturo and Kike, whose names are the basis of the winery they now lead, are shaping this project, firmly rooted in its surroundings and landscape.
Artuke is part of Rioja’n’Roll, a group of young producers who are committed to making singular wines which reflect their origins and terroir. Conscious of their heritage they fight to preserve it rather than transform it. That is one of the reasons behind their efforts to work thevineyards they own in the old way —no trellis on site; their plants are all bush vines, even the new ones.
The Pies Negros is a blend of Tempranillo and Graciano, destemmed and fermented uncrushed. All but 10% is aged in 500L Oak barrels for 12 months. This is a fresh and balanced wine, with abundant red fruits and a graphite minerality that gives the wine a wonderful precision.
