Bodegas Lagunilla is a historic winery founded in 1885 by Don Felipe Lagunilla San Martin in Rioja, Spain. Lagunilla is credited with leading the Spanish charge to replant vines grafted with American rootstock to ward off Phylloxera during the late 19th century crisis. Today, the winery is committed to adhering to Rioja traditions while using the latest innovations in wine technology.
