The company produces its wines in two different bodegas located in Elciego (Álava) and Rueda (Valladolid). Marqués de Riscal exports 60% of its production, distributing to more than 80 countries. Marqués de Riscal wines have received the highest international accolades as well as numerous awards and mentions in the critical press.
