Marqués de Murrieta is a cellar created in the 19th century by the Marquis de Murrieta. But in 1983 the Count of Creixell, Vicente Cebrián-Sagarriga acquired the cellar and began to consolidate itself as a cellary that crossed borders and consolidated in the international market.
Currently the second generation Vicente Dalmau and Cristina Cebrián-Sagarriga are in charge of running the cellar. It is currently present in two designations of origin: La Rioja and Rias Baixas.
In La Rioja it has 300 hectares of its own self-controlled vineyards with a continental climate tempered by Sierra Cantabria. The farm is called Finca Ygay where 6 grape varieties are grown; Reds: Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo, Graciano, Cabernet Sauvignon. The white one is Viura variety.
The cellar located in the Rias Baixas is called Pazo Barrantes. With 12 hectares in a historical pazo from the year 1511. Characterized by an Atlantic climate. Its location in the Salnés valley places it in the heart of the white of the Rías. This is the subzone of the appellation with a more pronounced maritime influence that is recognized throughout the Albariño grape in the vineyard.
