Marques de Murrieta wines are a collector's dream.  Steeped in rich history, being the oldest brand in Rioja, released with age, high scoring across the board, and garnering such praise from James Suckling as "The Best Spanish Wine of the Year and the only wine from Spain to be in the world's top 10" 

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.

 The 2010 Marques de Murrieta Castillo Ygay was named Wine Spectator's #1 Wine of the Year in 2020.  Not only will you get to drink their newest flagship release Castillo Ygay 2012 that was awarded 100 Pts, you will get to spend the evening with Chef John Scarangella, owner and Chef at Northside Bistro, one of our favorite places to eat in all of NC!  He is so much fun and is crazy talented.  Join us for a four course meal paired with these amazing Spanish wines.
