The idea – Naked Rioja, arose almost like a joke, as we actually wanted to make a very professional wine tasting event, demostrating as far as possible the diverity of Rioja. We tought that this campaign was pricisely the way to undress the wine region, said Ana Jimenez – CEO –  Bodegas Familiares del Rioja.


We have always been in favor of removing labels and distinctions in the world of wine and indeed the beret is a commom element in our promotional actions


We are village wineries and  we make excellent wines that go much beyond of the Jack, Horse, King with wich many consumer have typecast Rioja.
