Bodegas Martínez Corta is a family estate situated in the heart of Rioja Alta and was born out of four generations of viticulturalism. Since the 1960s Martinez Corta has consistently been the most important wine estate in Uruñuela, producing equality wines in a medieval cellar that has remained an important part of the estate since its conception. The estate includes 225 acres of old-vine Tempranillo located in Uruñuela, Cenicero and San Asensio, and all are at least 40 years old and head-pruned. Vineyard parcels are typically planted on high slopes deficient in organic materials, so that the wines can maintain a certain elegance and minerality.
A new gravity-flow bodega was completed in 2006 to produce fully extracted, fruit-driven wines that express the complexity and velvet palate of the noble Tempranillo variety. This is a notable and important characteristic of Martínez Corta that contributes to their remarkable production of high quality wines.
