Vivanco has earned several exceptional wine reviews from Forbes and The Wine Advocate. Forbes recently listed Vivanco Crianza 2012 as one of The Best 20 Red Wines Under $20. “Another reminder, if one were necessary, that Rioja is the best source of serious, and seriously good, red wines at modest prices. The Vivanco (Crianza) is all sun-brushed dark fruits with layers of tobacco, dark chocolate and vanilla topped by gentle hints of cedar," stated Nick Passmore of Forbes.
The Wine Advocate issued outstanding reviews focused on several Vivanco wines. The Reserva 2010 received the highest rating, with an impressive 92 point score. “It's mostly Tempranillo with 10% Graciano matured in barrel for two years. There are notes of incense and cigar ash, baking spices and ripe berries. The palate is medium to full-bodied with sleek tannins and a silky texture. It has very good freshness and balance. Superb Reserva at a very sensible price.” Vivanco wines are widely available in the U.S. through New Jersey based Opici Wines.
To experience Vivanco, it is best to visit Briones, located in La Rioja Alta, where the family has its extensive vineyards, state-of-the-art winery and Spanish restaurant. The winery is an experiential destination in that it features a three-floor, 13,000 square feet Museum of Wine Culture with artwork spanning 8,000 years. All art within the exhibitions touches on the relationship between wine and history. Reservations for wine classes, tours in English and dining can be made at: http://www.vivancowines.com/visit
