We now have over 500 producer partners united by our past, with many coming from families that have been part of the co-operative since its beginning.
Collectively our members help to produce over four million cases of wine a year from over 4,000 hectares of vineyards. Over 80% of them are small-scale producers, with the majority owning no more than three hectares of land each.
They are the backbone, the foundation, to the winery’s success and everything La Riojana does is based on providing help, support and services that allow our members and their families to grow and prosper in their own communities across La Rioja province.
Driving co-operative principles is the fundamental philosophy of the business. Every member gets one vote in helping decide what the overall co-operative does regardless of size.
We guarantee to provide each and every member a higher than average market price for their grapes.
We ensure they benefit from lower prices through collective purchasing of services and products, like diesel, fertiliser and frost insurance. We offer them financial and credit support to help members through difficult times. In addition to which, we also offer our members technical and agricultural advice.
By working closely with our members, we are able to ensure that all the products produced by La Riojana (from wines, sparkling wines, grape juice, to olive oil) meet the highest quality standards expected by our international partners and customers.
