100% Estate-Grown Fruit

Today, Murrieta is the largest continuous single estate in the region. It is still comparatively rare for a top Rioja producer, especially one of a certain size, to produce wine only from its estate-grown grapes. 

"Part of the style has been influenced by more than 100 years of history and is driven by the estate, and the other part is the improvements in knowledge and technology. In Marqués de Murrieta, the most important feature is the Ygay estate. With 300 hectares, we have an outstanding array of grape varieties (most of them indigenous) but also a rich variety of different soils, exposures and altitudes – the gems being our single vineyards. I believe it is very important to apply viticulture practices according not only to each of the wines we want to create but also to the extensive diversity of each plot of the Ygay Estate."
