  • This is a wonderful small bodega that gives you a glimpse in to how traditional wine has developed in this part of spain. We arrived on great day when there were lots of people working on bottling.....  more »
  • Of the four wineries we visited during that day, Tritium was definitely a favourite! It was intimate, fun and educational and the wine kept coming. Definitely not a classical winery but absolutely...  more »
  • Thank you Val for taking us to this hidden gem. We will remember our experience at Tritium for many years. Getting to press grapes with “The Big Guy” was a bonus. #winetourismspain  more »

  • A wonderful change from typical wine tasting experience. The staff was extremely warm, welcoming and fun. It felt more like a meeting of friend for drinks than a wine tasting. Ara, our guide, spoke excellent English and led us on a tour of Tritium bodegas' unique 500-hundred-year-old wine cellar which included a sample from their wine barrels. This was followed by a generous tasting which lasted over an hour. We tried various bottles of whites and reds, including a draw directly from a wine skin. Smaller producers like Tritium have been granted permission to innovate beyond Rioja’s traditional wine regulations. My favorite was El Largo, which is made up of a 4-grape variety blend from the producer’s best harvests and not normally available to taste. I ended up buying two bottles. Tritium is a must try for anyone looking to change from the usually mechanical tasting experiences at the big-name producers. What’s more, the wine is very good and the people are extremely jovial. Highly recommend giving it a try.
  • Was brought here by our guide (Alfredo). He was a former sommelier and he highly recommended this place. Am really glad that we went with his suggestion and came here. The wines are made with care and are really exceptional. We went to another "big name" winery after this and the difference in their wines was obvious. This place does it better, period. My only regret was not buying more bottles.
  • Had a wonderful experience at Bodegus Tritium. The wine tasting room is unassuming, and not at all a big commercial operation. We actually went there after being turned away from another that couldn’t fit us in due to the busloads of tourist that arrived before us. The tasting room is in an old historic room in an alley, you’ll miss it if your not careful. Our tour and tasting was guided by a very charming host named Ara.(apologies if I got her name wrong). We were her first group she hosted, and she did an amazing job and made the experience very warm and intimate. The owners introduced themselves and poured us a lot of wine and provided bread, salami, and olives. Their Tempranillo Reserve was amazing as was the Olive oil. Thank you for a wonderful experience and please compliment Ara for us and tell her to come visit us in Sonoma County California.
  • Amazing experience and definitely the best tour in La Rioja. The food and wine are amazing and the tour is different than the others. Rather than getting all caught up in the technical details of making wine you learn about the history of La Rioja and of the winery. The tour is done by one of the owners and you can see their passion for wine making. I would recommend to anyone visiting the area. The wines are delicious and a great price. Don’t miss out!
  • Millenials running a small sized bodega (one room). Very much on the experimenting side, wines were not typical Riojas in taste. Even though the staff were friendly, the vibe felt pretentious and bordering on arrogant, very distant from the traditional and humbling experience of most family owned wineries in the region.
