Working together since 1953
El Arca de Noé: the oldest Cooperative Winery in La Rioja
In 1953, a small group of winegrowers from San Asensio who many considered mad decided to unite their forces, scant resources and all their ingenuity to tackle together the adversities that had plunged the agricultural sector into ruin. That is how Arca de Noé, La Rioja's the oldest Cooperative Winery, was born.
Today 274 members from 4 different generations, past, present and future, work side by side in El Arca de Noé, upholding the spirit that has forged the character of our wines over all these years.
Discover a story about cooperation and overcoming adversity in the heart of La Rioja Alta through our wines.

ALL ABOARD THE ARK!
We want you to experience the Arca de Noé spirit
"All aboard the Ark" is what our members say when they close the doors of their homes and come to the winery, usually when they cannot work in the vineyard due to bad weather. They know that here they will be able to share news, anecdotes, concerns, joys and experiences with their travel companions, on this adventure known as "El Arca de Noé".
That's why we want you to board the Ark and visit us to learn first-hand about our history, our wines, life in the winery and the people who, working side by side every day, turn a dream that began in 1953 into a reality.
