Brand Overview

PAZO DE BARRANTES is part of the Marqués de Murrieta family, one of the founding fathers of modern Spanish winemaking.

With a vision of innovation and respect for tradition, Marqués de Murrieta is rooted in strong, historical fundamentals that shape the vision and philosophy of this iconic Spanish brand.

As of January 1, 2008, Maisons Marques & Domaines has become the sole US distributor of the legendary Rioja wine estate Marqués de Murrieta and Pazo Barrantes in Galicia.

The Region

The Pazo Barrantes estate is located in the Salnés Valley of Rías Baixas and is the largest single estate in the valley. The property is close to the Galician coast in the western part of Spain, just north of Portugal.

The winery is settled near the southern tip of the Rioja Alta in the middle of the beautiful Ygay Estate, a unique 300 hectare vineyard that guarantees complete control over the grape source of the wines and is the key to the quality and style of Marqués de Murrieta wines.
