The positive ratings invite us to keep working in order to achieve the maximum quality and maintain it in time” says Don Pelayo de la Mata, 11th Marquis of Vargas and 9th Count of San Cristóbal.
In the most complete report about Rioja made so far, Atkin highlights in his general considerations about the region, the extraordinary quality of the terroir of the estate Hacienda Pradolagar from which the winery Marqués de Vargás obtains all its grapes; as well as the effort in favour of the oenotourism that some wineries from Logroño, among which Marqués de Vargas stands out, are carrying out to develop the prestige of the region at a national level.
