Bodegas Puente del Ea starts the harvest with the announcement of a commitment to quality and growth with the aim of becoming a reference winery in La Rioja.
With Rodrigo Madrid as Chief Executive Officer, the project takes on a new dimension under the baton of the winemaker Julien Viaud, backed by his international successes and known for his more than 15 years as part of the Michel Rolland team.
Agronomist and winemaker, Julien embodies the new generation of consultants who are involved in both viticulture and oenology. By training and conviction, it is implicated throughout the wine cycle, from the management of the vineyard in the terroir to winemaking, aging and coupages. Julien will participate in everything that help to produce the best wines, according to the previously decided objectives.
Most of its clients are in the Bordeaux area, but he also works in countries such as Italy, Spain, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Lebanon and India, among others. All of them produce Premium and Ultra Premium wines.
This will be his first experience in La Rioja.
For our winery, it means having one of the world’s most renowned winemakers and wine consultants. This collaboration between JULIEN and PUENTE DEL EA allows us to make a new qualitative leap in production, looking for new ways in order to elaborate what he does best: wines from the territory without complexes, different, very personal, that are easy to drink and suitable for demanding audiences.
