Marques de Murrieta Rioja Wine Dinner March 7, 2024
We have run out of stock for this item.
The origin of Marqués de Murrieta winery is also the origin of Rioja. The Estate of Ygay (pronounced ee-guy) is one of the most famous in the world. Don Luciano Murrieta, applying techniques learned in Bordeaux, made the first Rioja wine in 1852, with the intention of sustaining it over time. He made the first fine Rioja wine to be exported. Fast forward 172 years, and they are still seeking perfection. They are a family and a professional team with the same goal: to keep our tradition alive, believe in ourselves and in the quality in the search for excellence. We work with our hands, our mind and our heart applying the technology always in balance with our history.
Kerry Knight will be here to share her knowledge of this historic wine brand.
