The vineyard of the Empress of France

 

One wine made in Baños de Rioja won one of the awards of the wine contest at the Universal Exposition of 1878 (Paris): it was the wine entered by Eugenia de Montijo, Empress of France and the owner of a vineyard with great quality potential.

In 1996, the Hernáiz family purchased that same estate, and brothers Eduardo and Victor Hernáiz took charge of a project aimed at producing quality wines.
