in 1993, ARAEX Rioja Alavesa led by Javier Galarreta; brought together a group of winegrowers from Rioja Alavesa and later other important Spanish regions to join forces and market wines internationally. Today branded as ARAEX Grands Spanish Fine Wines, the firm is an exporter, grower and brand owner of internationally acclaimed Spanish wines now present in more than 70 countries. We are The Leading Group of Independent Spanish Winegrowers, with a sales volume of more than 11 million bottles in the international market.
the firm achieved two major milestones: on one hand it was named Spain’s best export company by The Ministry of Agriculture; secondly, its founders decided to create a twin organisation in order to incorporate other designations of origin and thus Spanish Fine Wines was established.
continued making progress and in 2013, twenty years after it all began, we created The Grand Wines Premium, a division of the firm focused on innovation. The Grand Wines Premium also gives the opportunity to grow new product lines, such as Villa Conchi Cava, Gran Sello “Vino de la Tierra” wines and the international premium wine brand Rolland Galarreta.
