Founded in 1932 by Isaac Muga and Aurora Caño, and located in the historic Station Quarter of Haro, northern Spain, Bodegas Muga is one of the oldest Rioja producers - traditional and very highly respected.
Today, the Muga family holds 250 hectares of vineyards in the foothills of the Montes Obarenses, within the Rioja Alta subregion. In addition, it has long-standing contracts with the owners of a further 150 hectares. The extended family controls all aspects of production. Vinification is traditional, using 100% indigenous yeasts, and the wines are filtered naturally without the use of harmful pumps that would otherwise strip character. Oak is a hallmark of the Muga winemaking process – the bodega has its own in-house cooperage including a ‘Cubero’ (Master Cooper) and employs a team of barrel makers.
Bodegas Muga is a benchmark in Rioja, faithfully representing traditional Rioja Alta style, year after year.
These are rich and balanced wines always released at their peak of enjoyment from the estates extensive cellars.
