Luis Marín Díez founded his company in 1970 to carry on the family tradition in the wine industry, passed down through generations. Initially focused on wine bottling and distribution services, the company expanded in 1991, establishing a second winery in the heart of La Rioja, where it continues to produce wines with an emphasis on artisanal and small-scale production to this day.
