STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Founded in 1858, Marqués de Riscal has a 160-year legacy, introducing the first bottled Rioja in 1862 and earning acclaim at the 1895 Bordeaux Exhibition. In the 20th century, it pioneered anti-falsification measures like the golden net. The 21st century brought The Project 2000 and the City of Wine by Frank O. Gehry. La Botellería, the historic Bottle Cellar, safeguards over 130,000 bottles, including the inaugural 1862 vintage. Recently ranked as the world's second-best vineyard, Marqués de Riscal upholds a century-old commitment to excellence.
