Comments

A unique wine that demonstrates the potential for quality in Spanish sparkling wine. As the Muga family has always been enamored by Champagne, they set out decades ago to produce a sparkling wine from Rioja of the highest quality. Produced with indigenous varieties of Rioja, Conde de Haro has always been a mythical sparkling wine. Riddled and disgorged by hand, it is produced with the most traditional methods possible, resulting in a complex and timeless wine. Conde de Haro Rosé is one of Muga's three legendary rosés, the finest in Spain.
