the region goes back to the Greeks and Phoenicians with the important influence of the Roman Empire. With almost 10,000 acres of vineyards, some of them more than a hundred years old, El Bierzo is situated in the northwest of Spain. It is protected by mountains and possesses a own unique microclimate with influences from Galicia and the plateau of Castilla y Léon that keep away premature frosts in the Spring. The region has higher rainfall averages and cooler temperatures than central and southern Spain which results in bright, fruity wines that are generally higher in acidity and lower in alcohol. Producing very versatile and food friendly wines this is an up and coming appellation.


Vinos de Arganza turned into a family business when it was bought by Víctor Robla, who has a long family history in the wine business. For his wife Ángeles Varela this was a return to her origins. Her grandmother was born in Villafranca del Bierzo and was part of an important family of the nobility in the region. They were owners of important vineyards and wineries since the fifteenth century. This winemaking tradition has been passed down from parents to children ever since. The youngest generation are now joining the company in viticulture, enology and marketing. Today Vinos de Arganza represents the best of terroir, tradition and the incorporation of innovative systems to improve the wine making process with the highest commitment to produce the best possible wine each vintage.


Bierzo is located in a sheltered mountain valley in north-west Spain, adjacent to the province of León. The area is known for its distinctive red wines from the Mencía grape, which is best compared to the Cabernet Franc, because it also produces purple-colored wines full of juicy red fruit and a pleasant acidity. Especially the wines from the Mencia grape from Ribeira Sacra, Valdeorras and Bierzo are highly valued. Bierzo is even announced in various media as 'the next best thing'. Delicious with tapas with Serrano ham.
