Siglo wines are produced by Bodegas Manzanos. Bodegas Manzanos gives its name to the group of wineries that best represent the identity of the family Fernández de Manzanos. There are three wineries: Azagra and Haro in appellation Rioja and Campanas in appellation Navarra. In these wineries, the young team of the fifth generation of the family elaborates on the quality wines that are acclaimed worldwide. Its quality is determined by its origin: their own vineyards.
Their vast area of vineyards in different locations of the appellations gives them the power of playing with terroir nuances. In their wineries, the exquisite elaboration process is demonstrated. In Rioja, they own the emblematic and oldest winery of the appellation in Haro and their contemporary winery in Azagra, both using gravity as the principle of architecture for elaboration. Campanas is also the oldest winery in appellation Navarra. Eight years of sustained growth support these young people who win the respect and reputation of their wines day after day.
The history of Manzanos Wines is the story of a family, their effort, their perseverance, and their know-how. The Fernández de Manzanos has 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 liters of wine. In the 40’s they inaugurated a new facility which further increased its capacity to 350,000 liters, emphasizing the value of the viticultural tradition of this area. Between the 50’s and ’60s, they consolidated their project with the creation of Bodegas Viña Marichalar, the first one belonging to the appellation Rioja, which exceeds 1.5 million liters 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 from 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.
