Bodegas Real Rubio MAR&LUZ Muscatel
How sweet it is...
Small grain Muscat Alexandria, considered the oldest known grape varietal ever used for making wine, dates all the way back to the Egyptians. Real Rubio uses this same grape to elaborate the very fine dessert wine.
The story of Viñedos Real Rubio began over one hundred years ago at the hands of the great grandparents of the current wine makers, who began grape growing in plots around Monte Yerga in the region of Rioja. Their vineyards are home to most of the official varieties of the Rioja Designation of Origin: Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano, Viura, Verdejo in addition, they have vines over 60 years old alongside other younger ones less than a decade old. For Real Rubio, wine and the vineyards constitute a way of understanding life which goes way beyond the mere act of growing and making wines, something they have tried to capture in the winery.
