Origins

Marqués de Velilla was established in 1985 by the Segovian family Hernández de Mercado and is today among the most respected wineries in the Ribera del Duero appellation.

In 1987 it was established in Roa (Burgos) which is the town where the headquarters of the Regulatory Council of the Appellation of Origin are located.

In 1996 it set up at its current, permanent site in the small village of La Horra, where the family had purchased in 1989 one of the most spectacular estates in the region: Monte Villalobón. The estate has an area of 800 hectares in the municipal district of La Horra (Burgos). Vines had been grown on the land for many years and the previous owner was the religious community La Sagrada Familia.

Since 1998, Marqués de Velilla has produced wine solely from its own grapes, thanks to its 150 hectare vineyard, which is planted with 89% Tinta del País, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec and 2% Merlot.

In August 2000 extension work was begun on the winery to equip it with state of the art technology and to transform it into one of the most modern bodegas in Ribera del Duero.
