Country: Spain

Region: Rioja

Wine Colour: Red

Grape: Tempranillo

Volume: 75cl

Producer Profile

Martinez Lacuesta are one of the oldest registered brands in Rioja, pre-dating the creation of the Rioja designation itself. The wines are predominantly made from Tempranillo grown high in Rioja Alta to the West of Haro, with smatterings of Mazuelo, Graciano and Garnacha. The exception is the Campeador range which was created in 1917 to allow Martinez Lacuesta to expand their reach. Today these wines are made up of equal portions of Tempranillo from Rioja Alta and Garnacha from Rioja Baja. Over the last 20 years significant investment has been made to allow Martinez Lacuesta to own far more of their vineyards and a new winery and cellar was opened in 2015.Reflecting this more modern approach a selection of ‘modern style’ Riojas have been produced in limited quantities for those who prefer French oak over American.
