The winery was established by Henri Forner, whose family has followed the tradition for several generations.
The Forner family fled Spain during the Spanish Civil War and settled in France. In 1960, Herni Forner and his brother Elysée bought and restored two old Châteaux in Bordeaux, which enjoy great prestige today.
Henri decided to establish a new winery in his homeland and decided to build it in the most important area of Spanish viticulture, in La Rioja Alta.
Forner introduced the bottling system used in Bordeaux, limited its production and established the Unión Vitivinícola along with a selection of select growers.
Marques de Cáceres Reserve
The grapes are de-stemmed and crushed. Alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperatures, starting off at 10°C to reach 28°C. Prolonged alcoholic maceration with the skins up to 25 days to extract more colour, aromas and tannic structure. Malolactic fermentation in stainless-steel tanks. Once this process has finalised, the wines are put into barrels for ageing with racking every 6 months.
20 months in French oak barrels, split equally between brand new barrels and two & three-year old barrels.
