So in 1972 they set about the intrepid task of founding one of the very first wineries in the region they trusted in: La Rioja. Friends with one of the members of the group, the Marqués del Puerto endorsed the winery with his royal seal. Round, solid and crimson, it offered just the right amount of influence needed to turn their pioneering idea into an inspiring reference for Spanish winemaking in La Rioja.
And as the years passed, their innovative spirit began to shine through, allowing them to develop a new taste profile in La Rioja; one which remained deeply connected to the land and to Spanish winemaking traditions. They selected the people they wanted to work with and dedicated themselves to establishing long-term relationships, with a focus on creating balanced, fresh and fruity wines that never compromised on quality. Merging past with future, traditional craftsmanship with modern style, they believed that… only pioneers leave a mark.
