Marques de Irun is a small bodega owned by Emilio Lustau. As with Sherry, the philosophy is quality and value.
Rueda is one of the very few production areas in Spain that makes outstanding dry white wines from a local grape variety, the Verdejo. Often the tendency in the area is to dilute the Verdejo with large proportions of other varieties, like Sauvignon Blanc and the essentially bland Viura. However, it is the Verdejo variety that ensures the originality of good Rueda. Marques de Irun have therefore developed a blend majoring on Verdejo, with just enough Sauvignon Blanc to add a crisp acid bite.
