Marqués de Murrieta

The origin of the Marqués de Murrieta winery is linked to the origin of Rioja wine. Its founder, the Marqués de Murrieta, brought Bordeaux winemaking techniques to Spain, made his first wine in 1852 in Logroño and settled in Finca Ygay. Located in the heart of Rioja, this estate is home to the Ygay Castle, the headquarters of the Marqués de Murrieta winery, surrounded by 300 hectares of surrounding vineyards.

A palpable demonstration of the elegance, balance and regularity that characterise the Marqués de Murrieta winery and its surrounding vineyards located in La Finca The wines of Marqués de Murrieta show a balanced ageing in new and semi-new American oak barrels and bottle ageing. The result is elegant wines that combine complexity and finesse and combine the best attributes of the Rioja identity with modern touches.

The pure history of Rioja wines

The origin of the Marqués de Murrieta winery goes hand in hand with the origin of Rioja wine, since in 1852 Don Luciano Murrieta made the first Rioja wines and was the first to export them outside Spain. Don Luciano, appointed Marquis by King Amadeo of Savoy for his work in Rioja, travelled to Bordeaux to learn winemaking techniques, which he brought back to Spain. He established the concept of the French château on the Ygay estate where he had the emblematic Ygay Castle built.

In 1983, Vicente D. Cebrián-Sagarriga, 10th Count of Creixell, took over the baton and updated the winery and continued the legacy of the Marqués de Murrieta. After his death, his son, Vicente D. Cebrián-Sagarriga, current Count of Creixell, together with his sister Cristina, took over the management of the winery, accompanied by a young and qualified team, and completely updated the Rioja winery. Over the years, the family of the Count of Creixell has become a perfect link in maintaining the balance between tradition and modernity, placing Marqués de Murrieta in the 21st century in a privileged position among the Rioja wines of the world.
