Ainhoa and Jaione Ruiz de Viñaspre, from Bodega Ruiz de Viñaspre, are an example of Spain´s young working generation. The sisters both received college degrees before deciding to help their parents with the family winery. Now in their late twenties, they´re learning the ropes from their parents, while hoping to also bring something new and fresh to the table.
At a young age, their father, the oldest of seven, grew up on the land working to help his family. The majority of the memories the sister share of their father is out on the fields watching him work on the vineyard. The daughters have shared a father with the vines, as Ainhoa says ¨sus viñas son sus niñas¨. (¨his vines are his children¨)
They are now working to bring that love of the land their father implanted in them to people all over the world.
Notably, the winery is one of the few in the Rioja area that produces kosher wine.
