How It Started

La Riojana owes so much to the pioneering Italian migrants who first moved, in the 1940s, to the Famatina Valley in the remote northwest region of La Rioja province.

Not only did they work together, sharing their grapes to make wine for their new community and sowing the seeds for what would eventually become La Riojana, they also set up home in what is now one of Argentina’s most reputable wine growing regions.
