Inside Barón de Ley’s new €10m winery and barrel storage facility

Rioja’s Barón de Ley has invested €10 million in a new winery with 64 40,000-litre capacity fermentation tanks and the second largest barrel storage facility in the world, which is capable of holding 30,000 barrels. With the project due to be completed next year, take a look at the progress so far.

With large, ring-shaped lights suspended from the ceilings, Barón de Ley’s impressive €5 million barrel storage facility is nearing completion. Once finished, the building will house 30,000 French and American oak barrels, as well as several concrete tanks with a capacity of 400,000 litres. Barón de Ley spends around €3 million on barrels each year and the new facility and barrel racking line will be capable of racking 50 to 60 barrels in an hour.

The winery has also expanded its bottle storage capacity, with the site now able to store 7.2 million bottles, up from 4.5 million.
