In Belgium, the name Cordonnier is linked to wine, in the distribution in Belgium and in the wine-growing in Bordeaux with famous castles such as Dutruch Grand Poujeaux.
Etienne Cordonnier, whose mother's surname is Leizaola, wanted to go back to his roots. In 2011, he had the opportunity to buy a vineyard in Laguardia (Rioja Alavesa) that met his quality requirements with the ambition to produce very great wines.
The Rioja Alavesa enjoys a favourable climate for the production of fine wines and a variety of terroirs that give them complexity. Due to its ideal location and its unique terroir, El Sacramento offers the balance needed to produce very great wines. The magic of the terroir gives a unique expression. Viticulture is carried out with respect for the environment by protecting the soil and subsoil.
