All the grapes grown by our members, across some 4,125 hectares of vineyards, are then sent to eight different bodegas, with the majority going to our main winery in Chilecito in the Famatina Valley.
La Riojana’s total wine production ranges from between 35 million to 40 million litres, the equivalent of around 4 million cases of wine, depending on the harvest and vintage.
All of our production is certified Fairtrade and approximately 12% of our production is certified organic.
Currently we have 345 hectares certified for organic production, but we expect to see our organic production more than double by 2017 taking into account our ongoing conversion to organic vineyards.
This will be particularly important in growing our organic business, particularly in Europe where it already accounts for 44% of our sales.
By 2025, we aim to be 100% Fairtrade and 100% Organic certified.
