When his father decided to retire in 2003 and leave the vineyards, Eduardo Monge saw an opportunity in winemaking. Until then it was dedicated to transporting wine from the wineries in the area to bars and restaurants in the Basque Country, «but it was a few years when you lifted a stone and ten wineries came out here.» So he did not think twice and agreed with his sisters to keep those plots closer to the mountains and launch a more «modern» wine production.

Eduardo Mongue remembers that his father never paid attention to some Tempranillo strains that did not produce production. Until one day in 2009 those branches began to be covered with clusters. This is how, after some study and verification campaigns, El Laberinto de Viña Ane was born.

«The first thing I thought was that at least I was going to have more grapes those years. But then I tasted the grains and I saw that there was flavor, fruit and body there, so one day I decided to harvest them separately in a tank. The result was important and interesting «

A real labyrinth to find another wine treasure with which since 2009 it has made its most special wine, some «very unique» bottles. He defines it as a social gathering wine, «because it has so much fruit and aromas that it is better to drink it quietly, not in copious meals.»

El Laberinto de Viña Ane thus joins the large family of Del Monge Garbati, already made up of its Selected Harvest and its Signature wine, which it inaugurated with Centenaria. This is the only white in the winery whose rear label is one hundred percent complete. Viura, Malvasía, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Maturana blanca, Tempranillo blanco, Verdejo, Turruntés and Garnacha blanca. All these nine white varieties, all those authorized by La Rioja Regulatory Council, make up Viña Ane Centenaria.

Another creation that is born from an authentic viticultural jewel. Split in two by the road that connects San Vicente with its district of Rivas de Tereso, about twelve workers of land (the equivalent of a little less than half a hectare) accompany the winery’s facilities with vines that are pure art. A plot with 80 percent white varieties that Eduardo acquired 19 years ago from some residents of the town with an eye on making «different wines as well as modern.»
