Macán Clásico is a quintessential wine from the foothills of the Sierra de Cantabria in La Rioja, reflecting centuries of tradition, knowledge and winemaking culture. It showcases the freshness, fruitiness, liveliness and delicateness of the terroir, while also providing depth and complexity. Since 2004, behind the making of this wine, the winery has been meticulously working on the selection, acquisition and nurture of 98 hectares of vineyard, releasing its first vintage in 2009. And since 2016, the joint venture between Tempos Vega Sicilia and the Compagnie Vinicole Baron Edmond de Rothschild within the DOCa Rioja has owned modern facilities where innovation, technology and wine science converge.
Bodegas Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia was born in 2004 as the result of a joint venture between Tempos Vega Sicilia and the Compagnie Vinicole Baron Edmond de Rothschild. Both firms share the idea of making great wines in La Rioja, a unique, singular, inimitable winegrowing region. After five years of terroir evaluation and acquisition of 92 ha of vineyard, the project takes shape in 2009 with the first vintage of our two wines: Macán and Macán Clásico. To offer a modern and unique vision of Rioja is our philosophy, following the Bordeaux model of a first and second wine.
