General information

An absolutely outstanding red !

Marqués de Murrieta is currently held to be one of the best wineries in the world, and our wines are already present in 90 countries.

The 2008 vintage marks the 25th anniversary of my family’s arrival at Marqués de Murrieta. To commemorate it we have made a limited-production wine exclusively for the club: Marqués de Murrieta Gran Reserva 2008.

With more than 160 years of history under its belt, the success Marqués de Murrieta enjoys today stems from its ability to combine tradition with cutting-edge modernity. This adaptation to the new times and ownership of the Ygay estate (300 hectares) makes ours a unique undertaking in Rioja.

Following the success of Marqués de Murrieta Gran Reserva 2006, who better than the club’s members to receive this exclusive offer of a red Gran Reserva, a blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Gra¬ciano obtained from a careful selection of these grapes, aged for 24 months in American oak and matured to perfection in the bottle for a further 42 months by the time you receive it at home.
