Naming Marqués de Vargas in the wine world is naming four generations dedicated to the production and sales of excellent Rioja wines.The title of Marqués de Vargas is held by a family closely linked to this important viticulture region in Spain. It was in 1840 when Felipe de la Mata, the eighth Marqués de Vargas, planted the first vines in the outskirts of Logroño. Especially memorable was Hilario de la Mata, the father of the current Marqués de Vargas, who for years presided over one of the most emblematic wineries in Rioja. In 1989, D.Pelayo de la Mata, the current Marqués de Vargas, fulfilled his father’s dream by building a winery on the property “HACIENDA PRADOLAGAR” in Logroño. Hacienda Pradolagar is situated in the heart of river Ebro valley, in a place known as "Los Tres Marqueses".It has 70 ha of our own vines where are cultivated the varieties: Tempranillo, graciano, mazuelo and garnacha.And where wines with high quality are elaborated.
