Bodegas Muga

Wines that are born from inspiration and authenticity.
In Muga, we always use the finest materials and are open to new techniques that provide greater quality without losing authenticity.
To produce each of our wines, we continue opting for traditional procedures:
Through the natural process of fining, we eliminate the suspended particles that appear in the wine.
We carry out the decanting by the traditional method of gravity.
We are the only cellar in Spain with a master cooper and three in-house barrel-makers.

James Suckling 99 "The wonderfully silky texture with an added juiciness is what makes this wine so very special. The flawless and seamless nature to the wine is so impressive that it takes you breath away. Plenty of beautiful fruit but what mouthfeel. Drink now and forever."  Wine Advocate 97

Bodegas Muga Reserva 'Unfiltered' 2013
"Here we find a wine with medium-high depth of colour, black-cherry red with garnet hues. Dense legs which give us a wrapping sequence in the glass. First, red-fruit notes such as blackberries appear, with reminders of fennel, scrubby heathland, all nicely balanced by the smoked aromas from the

Wine Advocate 96 "The most classic cuvée was not produced in 2007 or 2008, so we jumped to the phenomenal 2009 Prado Enea. It was produced with grapes from cooler vineyards that enjoyed 20 extra days of slow ripening compared with warmer zones, which provided them with perfect ripeness and deep

"On the nose, you can detect, in this order, peach, pear and cherries at the point just before ripeness, still with a slight sharpness. We then come across some apple, also tart and very clearly defined, bringing a pleasant fresh sensation. The final aroma is of newly-baked pastry. The sharp apple
