Bodegas Amézola de la Mora produces quintessentiel Rioja, from Rioja Alta. María and Cristina Amézola Downes are amongst the youngest bodega owners in the region. They have inherited a family business which has a long, interesting history, although slightly tinged with sadness.

Their father Iñigo Amézola and brother Javier began work on the on renovating the family vineyards in the 1970s and 80s. They completed the huge task of renovating the extensive 19th century, underground cellars and rebuilding the winery to re-establish the business in 1987. Their ancestors had owned land in the region for hundreds of years and the cellars were originally built by their great-great grandfather in 1816. The family Bodega later became a victim of phylloxera, as with many of the original wineries in the region, towards the end of the century. The cellars and vineyards were abandoned and left to deteriorate.

Iñigo was tragically killed in an accident in 1999 and it was left to Cristina ‘Kitty’ Amezola Downes his wife to carry on the family business with her two young daughters. Friends and family rallied round to support her. María and Cristina, were able to take an active role from 2005. They both gained experience on the winemaking and commercial sides of the business, switching roles periodically to swop responsibilities and allow time to complete their own individual studies. They have gradually put their own stamp on everything, which included radically modernising the labels. They are keen to innovate, but clearly value and are very convinced of the worth in achieving the best quality they can, with their classic style of Rioja.
