2011 Marqués de Murrieta Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial Rioja red
The origin of the wine company Marqués de Murrieta is also the starting point of the existence of the Rioja region.
Don Luciano Murrieta, a man of visionary ideas and dedicated to his utmost passion for wine, applied the techniques learned in Bordeaux, then produced the first Rioja wine in 1852, with the aim of making them endure in time. Years later, in 1870, he moved to Ygay Castle together with his business and this is where the story of this incredible, historic, and world-renowned producer begins, with the Marquis de Murrieta headquarters being declared a museum in 2019.
The estate is surrounded by 300 hectares of fertile land with ideal conditions for growing vines and in 2011 embraced the project to renovate the facilities, including the latest oenological technology to the values that make them unique.
