Since the founder of the dynasty initiated the adventure in the late 19th century, the Rivero Family has always been linked to the growing, making and ageing of wine within the region of Arnedo. Today, the family's fourth and fifth generation continue to lead the bodega having made Marqués del Atrio a professionalised and modern company able to cater the most demanding markets in the five continents.
With a trajectory of over one hundred years, Marqués del Atrio is one of the leading bodegas both nationally and internationally. This has been achieved thanks to the continuous effort of providing quality wines that combine tradition and innovation. Marqués del Atrio is among the five major bodegas in D.O. Rioja, and it makes a total of twenty million bottles a year in its different production centres.
Marqués del Atrio's winegrowing and winemaking tradition is reflected in the first containers that were used to sell wine: the skins that later evolved into the traditional wineskin. It was not until 1965 that the wine was sold in bottles under the brand Chitón. Then, the brand Faustino Rivero Ulecia would arrive, which are wines conceived to become your everyday pleasure. Our product portfolio is subsequently extended by exploring the different designations of origin (Navarra, Utiel-Requena and Tierra de Castilla) with which to satisfy our customers.
Our philosophy of ongoing innovation is made evident in our most recent commitment towards signature wines under the brand Marqués del Atrio, a top quality Rioja wine made in our modern facilities in Mendavia, which brings together all our developments based on the integration of our old tradition with the most advanced R&D.
