Señorio de San Vicente, a single vineyard, represents the dream of the Eguren family. It is a long-term project which started with the planting of the vineyard in the early 80s, and finished with the building of the winery stone-by-stone.
The winery is directed by Miguel Angel Eguren; the winemaker is Marcos Eguren. This is a historic winery because it the first one to bottle this clone of Tempranillo by itself, and it may be the first winery in Rioja to use the concept of high density planting.
