Marqués del Puerto
A traditional winery from La Rioja committed to quality and sustainability.
Founded in 1972, bodega Marqués del Puerto is located in Fuenmayor, in the heart of la Rioja Alta. The winery farms about 300 hectares of vineyards, which have all the required conditions for producing quality grapes. Besides a rich variety of soils, the climate of the area combines several interesting features, such as the proximity to the Ebro river, the cooling effect of the winds from the Pyrenees and a noticeable Mediterranean influence.
The combination of all these factors, plus the expertise of the winemaking team, results in honest wines which proudly exhibit a traditional Rioja character. The defining variety of the wines of bodega Marqués del Puerto is Tempranillo, which is typically complemented with the flavourful, juicy Grenache and the fresh, high-acid Mazuela (aka Carignan). The winery also grows the white variety Viura, which in this area of La Rioja produces crisp and floral white wines.
Interestingly, the wines of bodega Marqués del Puerto are aged in underground caves, in which they can be stored under constant temperature and humidity throughout the year. It is worth mentioning that, until modern technology allowed the wineries to age the wines in state-of-the-art cellars, the traditional practice in La Rioja was to store the wines underground.
