Carlos Serres

Established in 1896 by Frenchman Carlos Serres, the winery is one of the longest established houses inRioja and was key to the development and success of the region.When Carlos Serres arrived in Rioja in 1885, the town of Haro had already established itself as a key distribution hub with lots of commercial activity with the arrival of the railway in 1880. By the end of the 19th Century, Haro was the main source of Rioja for the world.

Carlos Serres was a pioneer in Rioja. In 1896 he established one of the first wineries in Haro, the wine capital of Rioja. He was an instrumental figure in promoting the early exports of Rioja wines. Today, the Bodega remains family-owned and operated and is one of only a few centenarian producers in Rioja (100+ years old). The estate is just southeast of Haro and spreads out over nearly 150 acres of premium Rioja Alta vineyards with vines average 30+ years old. Bodega Carlos Serres sets out to remain one of the most internationally-renowned and influential wineries in Spain.

Today’s winery still respects the legacy and traditions of its founder: Concrete tanks protect the fruit characters and expressions of each of the varieties with the continuous micro-oxygenation produced by their natural porosity. The Bordeaux style, established by Carlos Serres, giving the wine its spicy, vanillin notes, still comes from using French and American oak barrels from the best coopers, slumbering in the brand new 5000-barrel cellar. All this with an architectural style that fuses a century of history with modern design. The estate vineyard, Finca El Estanque, is located in the ultra premium wine growing district of Haro, the heart of Rioja. The Carlos Serres range includes a selection of food-friendly, handcrafted Spanish wines
