Description of the municipality

Fuenmayor is in the heart of the best winemaking area of La Rioja, one of the best-known and recognised wine-producing zones in the world.

 

Its lands have always been exceptionally good for grape-growing. Millions of years ago, however, the area was completely different from what it is nowadays, being a marshy valley from which remains of animals and plants have been recovered.

 

Big wineries did not take long to set up, work the land and obtain yields on an unimaginable scale. This has enabled them to achieve high market shares in the Rioja wine market and earn great prestige worldwide.

 

Fuenmayor breathes wine culture, and it is a world reference in the field.
