Delve into the heart of our wines by knowing the history of our municipalities.
We tell you our stories and those of our wines.
Description of the municipality
Medrano, apart from being a village that borders Navarrete to the north, Sojuela to the south, Entrena to the east and Hornos de Moncalvillo to the west, is a very common surname in the region and also in neighbouring Navarre, where it acquired noble status.
The great variety of opinions on its origins do not give us a clear idea.
There is a hypothesis, however: according to the soundest etymological explanation, Medrano means ‘hillock near the river’. It is a place name derived from a maternal inheritance that evolved from Maderno to Madreno until it ended up as Medrano.
