The Wines of Lopez de Heredia
Lopez de Heredia is perhaps not a name that lies on the tip of your tongue; unless, of course, you are a bit of a wine geek. As a recent convert to the brilliance of LDH wines, I encourage you to seek some out. Lopez de Heredia has been producing Spanish Rioja wine for over 135 years. As both the red and white LDH wines age (and man, they can age!), they become beguiling wines that offer singular wine-drinking experiences. The red wines are made primarily from tempranillo, the whites from obscure varietals such as viura and malvasia. The wines, even the Gran Reserva wines from the early 1990s, can be found now in the Atlanta market.
