Bodegas Megallum is a young winery tied to an old tradition. The family business stands for quality in the making of wine and is dedicated to producing high-quality Rioja wines that express the distinctive combination of soil, climate and location – the terroir character.
The unique potential of the “Rioja Alta” region was recognised early on, located directly at the foot of the Sonsierra mountain range.
Abalos (Rioja Alta)
Barren soils, a hot, dry climate and an altitude of up to 600 metres, ideal conditions for the grapes to ripen to perfection. Bodegas Megallum owns 20 hectares of vineyards, consisting of 25 detached locations combined. The vineyards of the tempranillo grape are 40 years old on the average and surround the small village of Abalos. The wine-growing area in the vicinity of Abalos is considered one of the best sites of the D.O.Ca. Rioja Region.
The first-class quality of the grapes and the care taken of the vines could not go unnoticed. Top wineries always bought up the total annual output in past times. The family business set an important milestone with the decision to create their own brand name in 2006. It was the birth of Megallum wines.
