Bodegas Murviedro was founded in 1927 by the Schenk family, who currently dwell at the town of Requena; a land with over a thousand years or wine making history and where you can find world unique autochthonous grape varieties.
Its continental climate with Mediterranean influence provides its wines with a characteristic personality, that tinges them with remarkable nobility and softness.
Murviedro comes from Latin “Muri Veteres”, the old town walls that embrace the old Villa of Requena and that witnessed numerous battles during the Reconquista period.
