Tempranillo
100% Tem-pra-NEE-yo
Tempranillo is the most planted red grape variety in Spain and is also responsible for some of its best wines. The grape yields medium to full-bodied, mostly Tone & Backbone red wines of moderate to high levels of tannins and acidity. Flavor wise, it shows a mix of red and dark fruits, including cherry and plum, as well as leather, tobacco, with herbal and spice notes.

Bodegas Muga

Rioja, spain

Bodegas Muga was founded in 1932 by the Muga family in Rioja Alta. Viticulturists by trade, they soon grew and made their own estate wines. The winery is still owned by the Mugas and every single aspect of its operation is controlled and overseen by the family.

The Muga family are among Spain’s most important winemaking families, known not only for the quality of their wine, but their traditional winemaking philosophy, and goal of making wines with a sense of place. Every aspect of the winemaking process is still carried out in oak barrels and vats. Furthermore, every single barrel and vat is made at the winery by the cooperage team. The winemaking process is carried out with 100% indigenous yeasts, without any use of pumps, using egg whites for fining and even candlelight to spot sediment during racking.  

The Muga estate’s adherence to tradition is admirable, but it is their focus, consistency and depth of flavor that characterizes their wines that impresses the most.
