Vivanco Brunes is an organic, vegan Vino de Municipio that recovers the tradition of the Vinos de Pueblo brought up to date with the personal vision of Rafael Vivanco and his team. It is made with 90% Tempranillo and 10% Maturana Tinta from two of the Vivanco family's own vineyards in this particular terroir.


GRAPE VARIETIES: Tempranillo (90%) y Matu- rana Tinta (10%) ORGANIC AND VEGAN.
HARVEST: The grapes were picked manually, in Tempranillo, and the second week for the Maturana Tinta.
AGEING: A part of the wine remains 12 months in French oak barrels, while the other part remains in concrete and stainless-steel tanks in the bottle racks for at least nine months.
Nº OF BOTTLES: 18.577 bottles of 75 cl. and 600 magnums.

The image on our label is inspired by the Red Devil corkscrew, an American design by Gerald Youhanaie, registered in 1985, which belongs to the collections on exhibit at the Museum of Wine Culture.

We will always remember 2020 for the COVID pandemic and its consequences. It paralyzed the world and gave way to one of the most difficult harvests in history. A cold and rainy winter led towards an extremely humid and cold spring; consequently, the pressure of fungus was higher than anyone could remember. The fight was constant, especially for an organically grown vineyard like Brunes. We lived in the vineyard from May to October. The result: wines with less opulence; yet, very frank. Primal and fine; fruity and delicate. Representative of an extreme viticulture, and the struggle of man against adversity.

BRIONES, The landscape

BRIONES is located in the heart of Rioja Alta, 502 metres above sea level. A total of 1,400 hectares of vineyards are grown under the DOCa Rioja within the perimeter of the town. This makes it one of the towns with the greatest winemaking tradition in the area. Its climatic influence is predominantly Atlantic, with harvest dates around the first week of October.
The soils are variable, with light, stony soils, close to the Ebro River coexisting with the more clay-chalky soils in the southern part. It is a terroir of great quality, extremely suitable for growing Tempranillo and shorter-cycle varieties such as Maturana Tinta.

Con suelos variables, conviven los de origen pedregoso y ligero, cercanos al río Ebro, con los más arcillo calcáreos de la zona sur. Un terruño de gran calidad tremendamente idóneo para el cultivo de Tempranillo y variedades de ciclo más corto como la Maturana Tinta.

BRIONES, The vineyard

Vivanco Brunes is an organic, vegan VINO DE MUNICIPIO made with choice grapes from two plots of estate-owned vineyards grown employing organic viticulture methods in the town of Briones. Orizabal plot, planted with Tempranillo, and La Isla plot, planted with Maturana Tinta.
