The Wine Company

Winery

Muriel | Bodegas

Founded in 1982 when Julian Murua Entrena revived his father Jose Murua's winery which dates back to 1926 in the heart if the Rioja Alavesa (one of the three sub-regions that make up Spain's Rioja appellation). THe cellars are in the quaint, historic village of Elciego, which is renowned for being surrounded by some of the terroir in Rioja. The name Muriel comes from the combination of the family name Murua and the name of the town itself, Elciego. Today Julian and his son Javier run the winery with the mission to meld the long-held winemaking traditions of the regions with new technologies and techniques in order to make wines that express the best qualities of the grapes coming from these fertile Riojan vineyards. Like most red wines in the region all Bodegas Muriel wines are 100% Tempranillo, the signature grape of the region. Due to the special micro-climate of the region there is a triple influence from the Mediterranean, Continental and Atlantic climates which helps the vines produce very aromatic and elegant wines, whose main characteristic is to age.
