Don Jacobo the wine of the Ruta Jacobea

La Rioja is not only wine, it is a crossroads, a mixture of cultures which have gradually shaped its true character. A visit to La Rioja is a journey through the history of our Spanish language. It is not widely known that the first words in Spanish were written in the Suso Monastery of San Millán de la Cogolla.

Travelling around La Rioja is like travelling many years of history in a short distance. La Rioja is a patchwork of different kinds of art and cultures: that´s the reason way "La Ruta Jacobea" or Saint James Way crosses our land. From Celtiberians to Romans, Moors, Castilian Kings... each age has left its mark on our region in the shape of priceless pieces of art and architecture, such as the Monastery of Santa Maríaa La Real in Nájera, the Monasteries of Cañas or Valvanera.

Obviously, the wine culture involves the gastronomy pleasures. So it is not surprising that the La Rioja cuisine is one of the very best known one in Spain. Potatoes in Riojan style with -chorizo- (hot spicy Spanish sausage ), lamb chops grilled over vine twigs and a wide range of exquisite dishes offered with the region´s best wines.

And of course, wine, the "bodegas", the landscape dotted with vineyards,... These all serve to shape our land, La Rioja, a friendly region which open up its doors to welcome visitors to enjoying in Don Jacobo an example of the combination of tourism and wine, which is such a feature of La Rioja.

wine of a unique land

Bodegas Corral is located on the original pilgrims route known as Ruta Jacobea or Way of St. James, entering from the North and from Navarre. It was here that the San Juan de Acre Pilgrims Hospice was built and some of its ruins can still be seen on our estate.

Thus the brand name Don Jacobo means knowledge about the art of wine, ancient knowledge, which at the beginning was transmitted from traveller to traveller. Bodegas Corral wants to continue on this journey along the Ruta Jacobea by taking its wines to the best restaurants in the world.

our passion for rioja classic

Rioja is a region of secrets and profound silence. Over the centuries, men have developed the knowledge and expertise to produce wines which are delicate and delicious. Only a selection so careful, so traditional, so technically strict and artisanal such as at Bodegas Corral makes possible the elaboration of wines of such high quality. It is only due to the dedication of our old Riojan workers in the cellars that we are able to produce wines of such extraordinary bouquet, fineness and smoothness.
