Bodegas Muga

 

As many of you know, Bodegas Muga is one of Spain's most fantastic wine estates. The founding motto in 1932 is "inspiration and authenticity." The winery was founded in the town of Haro in La Rioja Alta by Issac Muga and Aurora Cano. It is still entirely owned and run by the family.

The vineyards are mostly Tempranillo, with some Garnacha, Mazuelo, and Graciano. The wines are complex and age-worthy, with the highest quality in every bottle. Today we offer the 2018 Muga Rioja Reserva and the 2015 Muga Rioja Prado Enea Gran Reserva. I will confess that the Reserva is my favorite value Rioja and the Prado Enea is my favorite Spanish wine, period. The Reserva is mainly sourced from vineyards in Baltracones, and the Prado Enea is sourced from the highest elevation vineyards in Sajazarra. Muga wines are made from only the finest vineyards in Rioja.

Muga uses both French and American oak for fermentation and aging. All the barrels are made on-site by a team of three coopers. Everything is organic and natural.
