The story of the Marqués de Murrieta winery is inextricably intertwined with the history of Rioja wine. The winery’s founder, the Marqués de Murrieta, imported production techniques into Spain from Bordeaux. In 1852 he produced his first wine in Logroño, moving into the Ygay Estate in the late 1870s.
Located at the heart of La Rioja, the estate is home to Ygay Castle, headquarters of the Marqués de Murrieta wineries. The castle is surrounded by 300 hectares of vineyards. The Winemaker Maria Vargas was considered the best winemaker of the year, with many awarded wines on her belt.
Include a guided tour through the vineyards of our Ygay Estate and a guided visit to our 19th century foundational winery, the Ygay Castle; finishing with a guided wine tasting paired with haute cuisine degustation aperitifs prepared by the Chef Mariano Pascual.
