Equus 2015 750mlVina Santa Marina
Equus Crianza Red 2015
Our president Mr. Alvear & wine maker Mrs. Piñero are fond of horses and by keeping the Latin name they pay homage to this noble animal so admired by roman people and our founders.
Vina Santa Marina was founded in 1999. The owners, hailing from Extremadura, were convinced that Extremadura, and specifically 8 kilometers outside of Merida, was the perfect location to embark on a new and unique project. They chose a 200 hectare estate at the foot of the Lamoneda mthere ountain range where there are 80 hectares of perfectly conserved Mediterranean woods. The mountains, woods, bodega and vineyard make for a truly beautiful setting that does not go unnoticed by visitors. While the holm and cork oak trees add to the picturesqueness of the area, the 61 hectares of vineyards give it freshness, enveloping the bodega, country house and grange in a simplicity and austerity that is characteristic of Extremadura.
