About Murua Winery and Masaveu Family Wineries
Bodegas Murua is situated in the beautiful town of Elciego, right in the heart of la Rioja Alavesa. Surrounded by beautiful landscapes, the main building maintains the structure of the traditional manor houses typical to the area. Bought by the Masaveu Family in 1974, this was the first of the five wineries that now form part of Masaveu Family Wineries, a prestigious winemaking group in Spain. The group is now present in five different strategic geographical locations: Murua (D.O.Ca. Rioja), Fillaboa (D.O. Rías Baixas), Pagos de Araiz (D.O. Navarra), Leda (Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y León) and Valverán Ice cider (Asturias).
Since then, Masaveu Family Wineries has grown to become a leader in the wine sector, due to the high quality of the wines that they make in several DO´s, their environmental philosophy and their maximum respect for the land where they own their own vineyards, thanks to which they succeed in transmitting the unique personality of the terroir in each and every bottle.
