Certain to leave a mark on you. Wine is the connecting theme of all our routes.
Delve into the heart of our wines by knowing the history of our municipalities.
We tell you our stories and those of our wines.
Bodegas y Viñedos Ilurce is a family company founded by grandfather Amador Escudero Perez in 1940, after the Spanish Civil War, when he bought a winery located in Alfaro (La Rioja). But, in fact, the origin is the great grandfather (Juan Escudero) who was cultivating vineyards and making wine in 1850, in a village called Grávalos (La Rioja). In the old winery 3 generations (the grandfather, our father Amador Escudero Abad and us) have been making wines until 2010.
In 1994 our father, Amador Escudero Abad, created the brand ILURCE making young red and rosé wines. In 2000, we start to lay down wine in barrels, so the first Ilurce crianza wine (2000 vintage) was born in 2003. In those years, we started to export wines, so we need more facilities and our winery became small.
In 2010, the Escudero Carra family started to make wine in a new winery, just built to develop new projects, new activities, … but without forgetting that the most important is our vineyards and the know-how inherited from our ancestors.
You are invited to meet our winery. You can know the secrets of 4 generations of the same family taking care vineyards and making Rioja wines. As well, you can taste and buy our wines.
