Marques de Grinon

Carlos Falcó Fernandez de Córdova, Marquis of Griñon, has pioneered the modernization of vine growing and winemaking in Spain. He is a grandee of Spain and Vice President of the Spanish Gastronomical Academy and President of the Castilla La Mancha chapter. In 1974, he introduced Spain to the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grape varieties. This was but the first step in a series of daring pioneering innovations by the man responsible for the great wines of Marques de Grinon. Years ago Carlos Falcó Fernandez planted a high canopy management vineyard with drip irrigation, advised by Richard Smart. With direction from Emile Peynaud and Michel Rolland, a partial root drying system was devised for planting Syrah and Petit Verdot, and launching the collection of grapes at night which here-to-fore was unheard of in Spain. These innovations contribute to the production of the complex fruit driven wines of Marqués de Griñón.

Located in Malpica de Tajo, 50 kilometers from Toledo, the vineyards cover a surface area of 50 hectares in the historic Dominio of Valdepusa (family owned since 1292). Currently, 42 of these hectares are used to grow Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Petit Verdot and Syrah varieties using a mixed system that allows for the use of the most advanced technology, canopy management. This was the first vineyard in Spain where the technique was implemented.
