“At the end of the 1990s and the beginning of the 2000s, Bodegas LAN began to build our current distribution network in the U.S. Our option was a direct import and regional distribution system, which initially concentrated on the East and West Coast markets,” explains LAN Export Manager Trinidad Villegas. “For the past decade, our network has expanded with new opportunities to grow in the Midwest market and beyond. After making some changes and adjustments over the years, we are proud to see that we are approaching 2020 with LAN wines available in 40 states, including a full range of single vineyard wines to complement our Classic wines.”

About Bodegas LAN – Rioja in Three Letters

With a connection to the land that is inherent to the origin of their winery, Bodegas LAN is named after the first letters of the three provinces in the DOCa Rioja: Logroño, Álava and Navarra. Founded in 1972, LAN’s innovative character is forged in each of the wines they make, based on conscientious vineyard management and precision winemaking. Bodegas LAN seamlessly blends the best of Rioja tradition and modern winemaking with their pioneer approach to aging in the highest quality oak barrels, crafted by the world’s best coopers – including French, American, Russian and hybrids. With the remains of the Mantible bridge as a witness throughout the centuries, the wholly owned Viña Lanciano has been – and continues to be – the essence and origin of Bodegas LAN. From the very beginning in the 1970s, it has been the winery’s bedrock and a symbol of its identity. Viña Lanciano is both a wine and a vineyard, made from vines planted in one of the region’s most exquisite settings nestled on 175 acres. It is a representation of LAN’s pioneering commitment and dedication to the land.
