It was in 1840 when Felipe de Mata, the eighth Marqués de Vargas, planted the first vines in the outskirts of Logroño. In 1989, Pelayo de la Mata, the current Marqués de Vargas, realized his father’s dream by building a winery on the Estate Hacienda Pradolagar in Logroño.
Today the property has an area of 70 hectares planted with red varieties like Tempranillo, Mazuelo, Graciano and Garnacha. We treat our vineyards as though they were the most refined garden, the vines are never watered so as to avoid the weakening of the tannins, and no pesticides or herbicides are used. The vine stocks are pampered year-round through different pruning processes and the removal of some grapes to improve the quality of the remaining grapes.
Marqués de Vargas winery produces in limited edition three premium single vineyard red wines (Marques de Vargas Reserva, Marques de Vargas Reserva Privada and Hacienda Pradolagar Reserva).
