Bodegas Manzanos Las Campanas

The history of Manzanos Wines is the story of a family, their effort, their perseverance, and their know-how. The Fernández de Manzanos family have been cultivating vineyards and producing wines for since 1890 when the first generation of the Fernández de Manzanos family established a small winery in Azagra with a capacity of 50,000 litres of wine. In the 1940’s they inaugurated a new facility which further increased its capacity to 350,000 litres, emphasizing the value of the viticultural tradition of this area. In the middle of the twentieth century, they consolidated their project with the creation of the Viña Marichalar winery, the first one belonging to the appellation Rioja, which exceeds 1.5 million litres in capacity.
In the 1990s, Víctor Fernández de Manzanos Pastor, the fourth generation of the family, joined the family business after studying Chemical Engineering and obtaining a Master’s Degree in Viticulture and Enology by the Technical School of Agronomic Engineering from Madrid Polytechnical University. Víctor was the first member of the family with training in viticulture and oenology. Víctor then built the Winery Marqués de Butrago and decided to perform his life project- the construction of Bodegas Manzanos.
Today, the public faces of Bodegas Manzanos are those of the brothers Víctor, and David Fernández de Manzanos, as well as Laura Mateo, wife of the former. In 2010, these young entrepreneurs took the reins of the winery to turn Manzanos Wines into a prosperous business, modern and endowed with the latest technologies in the field. A business that has managed to preserve the old flavor of tradition and the received legacy.
