Winemaker Audible Series: Miguel Merino

Welcome to the latest in our new series of audio interviews, where we hand the producer the microphone and allow them to tell us all about their winery and individual wines.

This time, it’s Miguel Merino Jr (right in the picture) presenting his Riojas

This Bodega has deservedly gained a reputation as one of Rioja’s rising stars. Initially selecting grapes from small plots near Briones to make their benchmark Rioja Reserva, the family have since added a number of vineyard holdings, and produce an award winning range of modern styles of Rioja. Today, Miguel’s son – Miguel – holds the reigns carrying on producing exemplary wines at this fine Bodega, widely considered as one of Rioja’s finest new comers for many decades.


First, choose a wine and you will find the link to hear Miguel’s view of the winery, with some interesting insights, on the ‘about the producer’ tab.
