October’s high temperatures accelerate and reduce our 2023 grape harvest17 October, 2023
The pair made up of Retegi Bi and Aldave have won the ninth edition of the Bodegas Tarón Handball Tournament after beating Elizalde and Bergera at the Adarraga pelota court in Logroño at the start of the Fiestas Mateas. The final ended with a 22-11 scoreline and after a match dominated by the Navarrese team.
Since 14 August in Navarrete, the six pairs of Garfe pelotaris have given us five exciting matches that have delighted the spectators in the most representative frontons of La Rioja. After the first day in Navarrete, the Tournament has travelled around the Tarón Territory, taking place in Tirgo (16th August), Cuzcurrita (19th August) and Sajazarra (26th August).
“From Bodegas Tarón, we continue to support this sport that brings us so many victories and joys. A collaboration that unites us with the best pelota in La Rioja”, explained our manager Gonzalo Salazar.
