One of the Oldest Wine Families in Spain

The Viña Santa Marina is located around 12 kilometres away from Merida, right next to the La Plata Highway. It was founded in 1999 by Alvaro de Alvear, CEO of Alvear Group for more than 40 years and belonging to one of the oldest wine families in Spain, producing wines since 1723. Today, Vina Santa Maria is a family project producing boutique wines in an outstanding environment: an extension of 200 hectares, dragged at the foot of the Sierra de la Moneda, with 80 hectares of perfectly preserved Mediterranean forest with holm oaks, cork oaks, olive trees, jars and a vast variety of shrubs that embellish this estate. They are one of the few wineries producing a 100% Viognier late harvest and were the first winery in Spain to produce a blending of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.

Grapes of Viña Santa Marina

Their vineyards are spread over 61 hectares of land and divided into multiple columns based on the soil and location. The soil is sandy and clayey with a lot of minerals. The Mediterranean climate features long and warm summers and cold winters. These natural conditions make the region perfect for vine cultivation. The main grape varietals that grow here include Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Tempranillo and Montua. The best grapes are used to make their distinct red, white and rose wines. The wines age in wooden casks and French and American oak barrels to attain their characteristic taste and aroma. The wines are high-quality and reflect the quality of their gifted terroir.
