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.
Multiple plots, countless nuances.
The range of wines produced by Finca La Emperatriz is structured according to the wealth of nuances resulting from the division of the estate.
Firstly, the winery produces wines with grapes from different plots, where complexity is sought through the coupage of several batches of grapes in order to make round, balanced and tasty wines.
In addition, wine made from grapes from a single plot, which extracts the specific personality of the terroir from which it comes.
