La Rioja is a region located in the north of the Iberian Peninsula. The river Ebro runs from one end to the other, forming a deep valley, while mountains line the horizon to the north and south. Between the Mediterranean and the north of Spain, La Rioja has been used as a thoroughfare since ancient times, providing a beautiful backdrop for incessant human movement. The Vina Eguia winery and vineyards were established in 1973 in Elciego, a historic village in the Rioja Alavesa. Bordering the Basque region, the language spoken here often includes Basque words such as “Eguia,” meaning “truth”. The brand is symbolised by a hand on an open book, evocative of swearing on a Bible.
