Manzanos Wines is the wine division of Manzanos Enterprises. It works on the elaboration of wine in appellation Rioja, Navarra and wines from Spain since 1890. Its history is linked to the memory of a family, its effort and their good practices.
As a result, ten different wineries belong to this company, which have been built along five generations of this family. It is to be highlighted the acquisition of Bodegas Luis Gurpegui Muga and Bodegas Berceo in 2016, which are two of the main wineries in appellation Rioja.
The main activity of this company is the elaboration and commercialization of appellation Rioja, as their main wineries belong to this Qualified Denomination of Origin. The wineries in which Manzanos elaborates its wines in this denomination are the following ones: Bodegas Manzanos Haro, Bodegas Manzanos Azagra, Viña Marichalar and Bodegas Luis Gurpegui Muga. This is possible thanks to the 950 hectares of vineyards (250 hectares owned and 700 hectares controlled).
The wineries where we elaborate appellation Navarra wines are our most recent purchase Bodegas Manzanos Campanas (before Vinícola Navarra, the oldest winery in appellation Navarra), Castillo de Enériz and Monte Ory wineries. Manzanos owns 50 hectares in D. O. Navarra and controls 525 hectares more. The company sums 575 hectares of vineyards in this appellation.
The wineries in which Wine from Spain is made are: Bodegas Mosen Pierre, Bodegas El Lagar de la Aldea and Bodegas Gurpegui.
After more than 130 years dedicated to the wine culture, Manzanos Wines has 950 hectares in the Rioja appellation (250 hectares owned and 700 hectares controlled). Together with the 575 hectares included in appellation Navarra (50 hectares owned and 525 hectares controlled)., the company sums up a total of 1.525 hectares.
One of the main assets of Manzanos Wines is the wide extension of own vineyard. Each area and each valley of the Rioja land have unique features. These features widely depend on the relation between the climate, the ground and the vineyard. Not to forget about the importance of the production and elaboration techniques that are imposed by our technical team. Both factors together determine the singularity of each wine.
Our vineyards are distributed throughout different municipalities, it allows the exploitation of the different lands as well as the differences of each variety of grape.
Wine is considered to be the link that joins people together, friends and family. That is what has happened in Fernández de Manzanos family, since they have known how to preserve and how to consolidate this ancient culture during more than 128 years. After more than a century related with the wine culture, the fifth generation of this family is the one who takes the lead of Manzanos Wines.
The brothers Víctor and David Fernández de Manzanos, as well as Victor´s wife, Laura Mateo, are the visible faces of the wine division of Manzanos Enterprises. Nevertheless, the history of this family goes back to the XX century. Since then, they have become such a big wine group thanks to their effort and their good practices growing the vineyards and elaborating wine.
Since these three entrepreneur youngsters arrived, there has been an exponential growth of the sales and there has been an increase of their presence in the international market (exceeding more than 65 countries) in less than three years.
