Finca Museum came about as the start of the expansion process by Grupo Barón de Ley outside La Rioja region, where it originated. Seeking vine-growing areas where it was possible to maintain the right value for money, the Grupo looked towards the Cigales Appellation of Origin region. Village by village, plaza by plaza, asking all the locals, we finally found a singular vineyard where to build a spectacular winery that today bears the name Finca Museum. In 1999 we elaborated a test year at an external winery and aged the wine in a former hermitage in Cigales. One year later, the first bottle of Finca Monasterio by Grupo Barón de Ley wine was opened made that year. A new history began. Finca Museum vineyards and their centenary old vines are located in a truly singular landscape. Poor soil, abandoned for generations, which accumulates the heat during the hot summer days and releases it during the night, thus contributing to perfect polyphenolic and aromatic ripening of the grapes. We have low yield, but rich in minerals, synonymous of quality. Vineyards of singular beauty where different variety vines grow together, conferring the region a particular feature that is hard to find anywhere else.
