Located in Oyón, Rioja Alavesa, Marqués de Vitoria travels the journey of innovation and modernity, and embarks on this journey from the commitment to the environment and the welcoming personality of its land, Rioja Alavesa. The winery and its wines perfectly combine the essence and roots of this land with the ability to innovate.
These wines are made using the best grapes of a harvest, and are only produced during years that were considered to have enjoyed a good growing season. Rioja Reserva must age for a minimum of three years, with at least one of those in oak, and the rest in the bottle.
