The life of the Marques of Vitoria presents a sequence of historical landmarks. He migrated to south America in the late 19th century. Arriving in Chile he embarked upon a variety of business ventures. He found in vines a symbolic encounter between the beauty of the land and man's legitimate ambitions. His wines achieved great renown.

Before returning to Vitoria to live out his last days in the homeland, he joined a group of adventurers from Alava in the pursuit of the Calcedonia fiabilis, a beautiful, little-known blue butterfly. Today, the Marquis of Vitoria remains in the strata of memories where great anonymous heroes and great men rest.

Marqués de Vitoria produces fruit led contemporary styled Riojas from their innovative winery, producing a wide range of wines.

The traditional wine-making processes have been adapted to use cutting-edge techniques.

Tasting Notes

Clean, bright, cherry red colour developing to maroon. The nose is complex and intense with well integrated aromas of ripe fruits and spicy wood notes. In the mouth this is elegant, round and very balanced. Pleasant on the palate, smooth and fine with refined tannin. Long finish, sweet hints with wood and toasted notes.

It matches with any kind of meat and mushrooms rice. Medium-aged cheese such as emmental or gruyere. Delicious with curried goat and lamb.
