The winery is located in Mendavia near Navarre in the Spanish Rioja sub-region Rioja Baja. It was founded in 1985 by a group of prestigious Rioja specialists and is owned by a group of investors (Diez, Noain and Santos-Ruiz families). In the middle of the vineyards stands an old monastery dating from 1548, which has been completely restored. The first wine was produced in 1990.
