Viña Eguía | Rioja Alavesa

Bodegas Viña Eguía in Elciego, Spain

The Viña Eguía winery and vineyards were established in 1973 in Elciego and purchased by Bodegas Muriel in 2010. Elciego is a historic village in the Rioja Alavesa, which borders the Spanish “Basque” region, and the language spoken there often includes Basque words, such as “Eguia” which means “truth”. The brand is symbolised with the outstretched hand and the motto “in vino veritas” (the truth and nothing but the truth) - analogous to putting one’s hand on a bible to swear to the truth of what one is saying.
