The origins date back to 1860, when the Pérez Foncea family founded the original winery in Fuenmayor, one of the most prestigious towns in La Rioja Alta.

The bodega’s motto is “Great Rioja Wines since 1860”. It is one of only ten firms chosen from Rioja that can sell the so-called “old vintages” from before 1980. These vintages are recognised year after year by international experts such as Robert Parker.
