Marqués de Riscal - a brief introduction...
Marqués de Riscal is one of the oldest Rioja wineries. Founded in Elciego (Álava) in 1858 by Guillermo Hurtado de Amézaga, from the outset it has been a point of reference in the winemaking business at both national and international level. Throughout its history, Marqués de Riscal has always been an innovating, pioneering cellar and reference in a constantly changing winemaking sector.
Marqués de Riscal seek to make wines which are original, fresh, elegant and easy to drink. Since the beginning they have always had a clear vocation for exporting. Nowadays the wines can be found in nearly 100 countries to which they export 60% of their output. In 2011 the Marqués de Riscal restaurant received its first Michelin Star and in 2013 Marqués de Riscal was awarded Best European Winery by the prestigious Wine Enthusiast magazine.
