Producer: From the website of the UK agent 'Liberty Wines' -
"Bodegas LAN is located in the heart of Rioja Alta. Founded in 1972, Bodegas LAN was named after the initials of the three provinces in the Rioja Designation of Origin: Logroño (now La Rioja), Álava and Navarra. María Barua has been the head winemaker and technical director since 2002, and brings both scientific expertise, with an academic background in chemistry in addition to her oenology degree, and local knowledge, being born, raised and educated in Rioja. She and her young and energetic team focus not only on understanding the technical details of winemaking, but also on ‘expressing the virtues of the land'.
The name is a reference to ‘DEPOSIT 12’, the stainless steel tank that, according to LAN winery personnel, holds the most outstanding wine of the vintage."
