Marques de Tomares is a family winery, whose beginnings date back to 1910 when “Grandpa D. Román Montaña” began to dedicate himself to the production and aging of wines. Mr Montaña laid the foundations with a focus on high-quality blending, and slow maturation in barrel and bottle; an approach which his great grandchildren continue to pursue. Marqués de Tomares is located in Fuenmayor, under the Rioja Qualified Designation of Origin, in the Rioja Alta sub-area, this being a town where historically the high quality of its wines for aging wines is characterized. Although small in size, the natural region of La Rioja has different climatic zones as a result of its geography; Atlantic, Atlantic-Mediterranean, which gives it unique characteristics for the cultivation and production of its wines.
