Bodegas Bretón

Founded in 1983 by local businessmen led by the Bretón Cata Bodegas Bretón Rioja 058.jpgfamily, its modern facilities can now be visited in Navarrete, where the “Loriñón” range is produced, alongside the top reds that gave the winery its good name, especially Dominio de Conté. The firm has a hundred hectares of its own vines located in Rioja Alta and currently manages 4 wine brands: Alba de Bretón, Pagos del Camino, Dominio de Conté and Loriñón.
