The history of Manzanos Wines is the story of a family, their effort, their perseverance and their know-how. The Fernández de Manzanos have been cultivating vineyards and producing wines for more than a century.
It was exactly in 1890 when the first generation of the Fernández de Manzanos family established a small winery in Azagra with a capacity of 50,000 litres of wine.
In the 40’s they inaugurated a new facility which further increased its capacity to 350,000 litres, emphasizing the value of the viticultural tradition of this area. Between the 50’s and 60’s, they consolidated their project with the creation of Bodegas Viña Marichalar, the first one belonging to the appellation Rioja, which exceeds 1.5 million litres in capacity.
In the 90s, Víctor Fernández de Manzanos Pastor, from the fourth family generation, joined the family business after studying Chemical Engineering and obtaining a Master’s Degree in Viticulture and Enology by the Technical School of Agronomic Engineering from Madrid Polytechnical University. Víctor is the first member of the family with training in viticulture and enology.
Víctor then built the Winery Marqués de Butrago and decided to perform his life project, the construction of Bodegas Manzanos Azagra.
Nowadays, the public faces of Bodegas Manzanos are those of the brothers Víctor, and David Fernández de Manzanos, as well as Laura Mateo, wife of the former. In 2010, these young entrepreneurs took the reins of the winery to turn Bodegas Manzanos into a prosperous business, modern and endowed with the latest technologies in the field. A business that has managed to preserve the old flavor of tradition and the received legacy.
