More information

The history of Bodegas Muga is intrinsically linked to that of the Muga family itself.

Bodegas Muga was founded in 1932 by Isaac Muga and his wife, Aurora Caño, both of whom came from families with a long tradition of activity within the wine-making industry. Over the years, Muga wines have gained international recognition and acclaim, and from working with just a few thousand kilos of grapes per year, the bodega has now expanded its processing capacity to over one and half million kilos.

Today, new generations of the Muga family continue to join the family business, making Bodegas Muga a true symbol of family tradition.

Soil and climate combine to create optimum conditions.

The Bodegas Muga vineyards are situated on the east and south-facing slopes of the Obarenes Mountains, which are sculptured into terraces to form a series of small plots.

The soil in this region is mainly clayey and calcareous, although some regions tend to be more ferrous and alluvial. The land is divided into small plots with varying physical and chemical properties and their own individual and clearly defined personalities. This aspect is particularly important with regard to tempranillo grapes, in which the characteristics of the soil have a marked influence on the final flavour of the wine.

Experience has taught us to value and make use of the different virtues of grapes grown in different soils, in order to extract their maximum possible oenological potential. Other grape varieties that are used in a lower proportion, but which help balance and enhance the tempranillo strain are mazuelo, graciano and garnacha.

Meticulously faithful to our traditional wine-making methods, at Bodegas Muga we use oak tubs and vats throughout the entire process.

At Muga, we make our own oak vats and casks, and carry out all our wine-making, ageing and storage activities using oak. Our casks are made from French and American oak and are replaced at least once every ten years.

For Bodegas Muga, tradition is a way of life that is now so deeply rooted, that it has become almost law. Our tradition is based on wood, whether it be used to form, tubs, casks, beams or pillars. Muga has changed the rules of ageing, exceeding the minimum limits to produce crianzas that taste like reservas, and reservas that taste like grandes reservas. Nevertheless, although it may seem somewhat paradoxical, this working philosophy has not prevented us from making wines that are perfectly in tune with modern times.

Muga Special Reserve

Fermentation with indigenous yeast in oak vats. Aged for 26 months in casks made from oak specially selected from our cooperage. Before bottling the wine is fined with fresh egg whites. Once bottled it will undergo a process of rounding off in the bottle for twelve months in our cellars.

   Tasting NotesYou can find good, even depth of colour with purple glints right in the heart of the glass without the least sign of oxidation.
Its nose preserves the character which defines this harvest: the fruit a rung below the dominant ripeness which mingles with hints of liqueurs which you can only find in this wine and not in the rest of the range from the same vintage.
The tertiary aromas come through in the form of leather and very faint hints of cloves and mountain herbs.
It is on the palate that it reveals its greatest strengths: fruit you can almost chew, soft, silky tannin, a good level of acidity and infinite mineral nuances. The synergy of these sensations creates a really powerful impact on the taster.
The features detected in direct olfaction are repeated in retro-olfaction, but almost in reverse order.
The fruit, now a little riper, comes to the fore, the spices from the oak and the mountain herbs rise to the same level and the hints of liqueur disappear.
While it is already a more than satisfactory, it needs some time in the bottle for its aromas and flavours. A little patience will be richly rewarded.
