Description

Bodegas Martinez Corta began in the village of Uruñuela in the 1960s at a time when the labor in the vineyard was done manually with the help of a mule and simple machines. Today, the family has a state of the art facility (the envy of many a larger Rioja bodega) completed in 2006.What began as a tiny family winery is now one of Rioja’s rising stars. Bodegas Martinez Corta produces a burgeoning portfolio of Rioja wines from 225 acres of old head-pruned Tempranillo vines, all located in the Rioja Alta. The bodega’s vines range from 40-100 years of age. Cepas Antiguas Selección Privada (meaning old vines private selection) is the bodega’s most important single wine. Martinez Corta also fashions smaller quantities of Rioja Blanco and Rosado, a number of Crianza Rioja offerings, and a special proprietary Rioja named SOROS (The Author).
