At the top of a small hill at the exit of Elciego (Álava), in the direction of Laguardia, stands Bodegas Murua , owned by the Masaveu Family since 1974, a classic reference in Rioja Alavesa . Its wines, Reserves and Large Reserves, come from 110 hectares of its own vineyards that have strains that in some cases exceed 60 years of age. From these old vines, Murua produces classic and elegant wines that perfectly express the personality and soul of this land.
The extensive winemaking tradition of the Masaveu Family goes back to the times of Federico Masaveu Ripoll who in the mid-19th century built his own winery in Castellar del Vallès (Barcelona), where the family originated.
Surrounded by ancient vineyards and with the spectacular mountain range, the Bodegas Murua offer in addition to the reception hall, elaboration, barrel room and bottle rack a social area with large custom rooms and private dining room with antique furniture where you can enjoy typical local foods, visits and meetings.
The winery also has an art collection; paintings, furniture, decorative objects ... in which names of prestigious artists such as Tomás Hiepes, Juan de Arellano, Fernando Sotomayor, Valentín Zubiaurre, Francisco Bores, Daniel Quintero and Miquel Barceló are represented.
Within these facilities Bodegas Murua has an exclusive library, unique in the D.O.Ca. Rioja, where the winery treasures hundreds of volumes that collect everything written about wine from the 16th century to the present day.
