About Marques de Arienzo:

Marques de Arienzo was founded in 1972 by The House of Domecq, one of the oldest and highest quality winemakers in Spain. Domecq has been producing wine in Spain since 1730.

Originally, the family produced ultra-premium sherries that provided both the Spanish and English Royal Families their private stock. King Fernando VII conceded Domecq the Royal Warrant in the 19th Century, and today the same bodegas supply King Juan Carlos and Queen Sophia of Spain. Domecq's other celebrated customers have included William Pitt, Admiral Nelson, the Duke of Wellington and, more recently, Henry Ford 2nd, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Queen Elizabeth, whose favorite Sherry is La Ina.

Today, Domecq produces sherries, brandies, sparkling wines and Marques de Arienzo Rioja wines, which are exported to more than 102 countries.
