Rioja and beyond since 1877.
Founded more than 135 years ago, in 1877 by Don Miguel Martínez Berberana in the village of Ollauri, in the heart of La Rioja. Berberana is not only one of the oldest wineries in La Rioja but one of Spain’s bestselling wine brands worldwide.
Over the years the Berberana name has become synonymous with quality wines from Spain thanks to its vocation to explore avant-garde, quality winemaking in any of the emerging, fast developing new wine regions of Spain. We were also one the pioneers to embrace Tempranillo as the icon grape of Spain.
In 1994 Berberana broke new ground in Spain: as the first traditional brand from Rioja to venture into Vinos de la Tierra (Country Wines), creating a whole new category of exciting young, fruit driven wines to suit all occasions.
Berberana is no longer just Rioja, Berberana is Spain. Expanding from our home in La Rioja, we started producing wines from Vino de la Tierra de Castilla and D.O. Catalunya. Then In late 2013, we merged brands with one of the largest Cava producers in Spain, moving all wines from the Marques de Monistrol brand name to Monistrol by Berberana.
Today, our founders aim still remains true for all of our wines: “To consistently deliver the finest quality wines at an affordable price”. The Berberana philosophy is to offer a variety of quality Spanish wines that represent real value for money; this is at the heart of everything we do. We have no desire to be the lowest cost producer in the market, we strive to be the best value – in every sense.
