Bodegas Marqués de Murrieta is a Spanish winery, located in the Rioja region, founded in 1822 by Peru-born Luciano Francisco Ramon de Murrieta.[1] The estate's most well-known wine is its Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial but it is also known as one of the few Rioja producers to still make traditional oak-aged white wines.[1][2]

Its Dalmau release contains a proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon and is aged in French barriques. A "Historic Release" Gran Reserva is bottled for special vintages and released after almost two decades in oak.[citation needed]
