The purity of the terroir

The Eguren family’s wine-growing project in La Rioja and Toro aims to produce wines evoking the special character of the winery, defined by its versatility and marked identity. Marcos and Miguel Eguren, along with their father Guillermo and the new generation, represented by Eduardo Eguren, have striven for excellence in the care they have shown the vineyard and their great respect for the fruit found in its cellars, to turn out wines qualifying as new classics. Wines that endure over time, fusing fruit, potency and structure with elegance, freshness and subtlety.
