Imperial is one of the fine cellars owned by Compania Vinicola del Norte de Espania (CVNE), with it's stand-alone facilities located in CVNE's original winery.  As a range, Imperial Rioja was first bottled in the 1920s and took its name from the unique bottle size in which the wine was sold - Imperial Pints for the UK market.

Imperial ages their Gran Reserva wines for 36 months in a mix of American and French oak casks with a further 48 months bottle-ageing before release to the market.  The wine is a blend of Tempranillo (85%), Graciano (10%) and Mazuelo (5%).
