The grapes come from carefully selected parcels in the village of Leza, close to the Sierra Cantabria, and produce structured wines from old vines planted at 600 meters of elevation. The microclimate here is cool and humid, which leads to later ripening than other areas in the region and the wines have dense, inky, and muscular tannins with a dark fruit profile. The bush vines are planted in limestone soils and are cultivated with respect for the environment, using minimal sprays of copper and sulfur. The fruit is hand-harvested in 15-kilogram boxes to preserve the quality. Current Denominacian de Origen regulations in Rioja only permit the use of a village name on the label by the location of the winery (i.e. the building, not the vineyards) thus the wine from the Leza vineyards is marketed as L3Z4.

Badiola, founded in 2018, is a winery based in the heart of Rioja Alavesa which offers a new perspective on Rioja wines: here the emphasis is on-site, rather than aging. The vineyards are situated on the slopes of the Sierra Cantabria, predominantly surrounding the villages of Villabuena, Leza, Laguardia, and Banos del Ebro, with each terroir producing wines with distinctive character. The vines are extremely old and low-yielding; many were planted in the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s and they deliver concentrated juice with a clear identity. Vines are planted on hillsides in soils with a high percentage of limestone, a characteristic that sets Alavesa apart from the rest of Rioja, together with high altitude and vineyard age. The winemaking philosophy is to obtain very pure, fresh, and well-textured wines that reflect their origin.
