Marqués de Cáceres was set up in 1970
Enrique Forner established Marqués de Cáceres in 1970 as a historic alliance between La Rioja Alta and Cenicero. The family has been involved in winemaking for five generations, aiming to be the best vinegrowers in La Rioja. They used a Bordeaux model, which revolutionized their business and production. Currently, Cristina Forner runs the estate and has the same thing in her mind as her predecessors, making the best possible, high-quality wines.
Cenicero is one of the best grape-producing areas in La Rioja
The winery is located in the heart of La Rioja, 20 kilometers from Logrono in Cenicero. It is one of the top grape-producing areas in La Rioja and features an ideal soil and microclimate for the growth and cultivation of grapes. The winery controls around 985 hectares of vineyards through a close relationship with many vinegrowers of the region. There is a guaranteed supply of quality grapes, and the staff is responsible for supervising the growth and harvest of grapes here.
Award-winning products of the winery
Tempranillo, Verdejo, Garnacha, Viura, Malvasia, and Graciano grapes are commonly grown here and used to make red, white, and rose wine. A lot of investment is made to improve technology and winemaking machinery. Marqués de Cáceres has won several major honors and awards during its history because of the quality of its products. The winery welcomes guests to show their immense work in both the vineyards and the winery.
