Bodegas Muga is Rioja Alta’s premier producer and the Muga family are unanimously considered to be one of Spain’s most important winemaking families. Wines here are some of the best in Rioja or Spain but rather in the world, with Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate even tasting and reporting on their wines separately each vintage.
The winery has practically legendary status due to its philosophy revolving around adherence to tradition, dynamism, and winemaking of the highest quality. Few producers in the world fashion wines that have such a sense of tradition and place as Muga’s.
Muga Rosé, like the other wines from Bodegas Muga, is produced from a blend of trellised and head trained vineyards in the highest altitude zones of Rioja Alta. When Bodegas Muga was founded in 1932, it was actually called Claretes Muga, or “Rosés Muga,” due to the company’s specialty of high quality traditional claretes from Rioja. A clarete is a rosé that is produced from cofermenting red and white grapes. This was particularly common when the highest proportion of red varietals in Rioja was dominated by Garnacha. Today, Muga continues this tradition with Muga Rosé, which is Spain’s most respected and demanded rosé.
Their 2018 Rosado is absolutely killer. Just ask James Suckling who raved about the wine in his 92 point review. At today’s price, this is a case purchase no questions asked.

92 Points, James Suckling
A beautiful rosé as always with a pink salmon color. It opens with rose petals, pink guava, grapefruit, mandarins and freshly squeezed nectarines. Medium-bodied and very salty on the palate. Lithe and oily texture, but a sharp acid backbone. Macabeo, grenache and tempranillo. Drink now.
