Overview of the Wine
In 1970, Enrique Forner founded Marqués de Cáceres Unión Vitivinícola S.A., a historic alliance of growers in the village of Cenicero in the Rioja Alta subregion of Rioja. The enterprising Forner family has been devoted to the wine trade for five generations. Their search for the best vine growers and vineyards in Rioja and the introduction of a Bordeaux concept revolutionized the production and business model of the region. They work with one single objective: producing the highest quality wines. Today this obsession continues to be the leitmotif of Cristina Forner, the fifth generation of this distinguished wine family.
Since it was founded, Marqués de Cáceres has had a guaranteed supply of grapes in privileged areas of high-quality vineyards, principally located in areas of the Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa sub-regions, and particularly in the town of Cenicero where the winery is situated. Our technical teams are responsible for monitoring and supervising the vine growing tasks with the aim of ensuring the highest quality of the fruit harvested each year.
In many cases, the vines are over thirty years old and it is mainly the Tempranillo (red) and Viura (white) varieties that guarantee the grapes required to make the highest quality wines. Every year, the Technical Management team at the winery establishes a strict calendar for when the grapes are to be harvested and enter the winery, according to the findings of visits made to the vineyards, tastings of the samples obtained and the ripening tests performed in the laboratory.
