Arabarte was constituted as a limited society on the 15th April 1997 but the beginning was much earlier when the ancestors of the family, owners of the vineyards only sold the grapes.
Afterwards they started to produce wine in a small cellar in Samaniego, 2 kilometres from where it is now.
This wine was sold to the surrounding cellars, that made and extra income to the product of the vineyards..
Then, five of these families decided to take one more step, not only producing grapes and vinifying them but marketing the wine with the name of Arabarte, a mixture of the words “Araba”(Alava in the Basque language) and arte. That more or less means “The art of making wine in the Rioja alavesa”
