Grupo Faustino is at present a symbol of love to land and top quality wines. Since 1861, when Eleuterio Martínez Arzok purchased the firs plots of land in Oyón (Álava), Grupo Faustino has been growing and establishing in the most prestigious Spanish wine regions: Rioja, Navarra, Ribera del Duero and Mancha. Nowadays the group owns seven wineries: Bodegas Faustino, Bodegas Campillo and Bodegas Marqués de Vitoria in DOCa Rioja, Bodegas Valcarlos in DO Navarra, Bodegas Leganza in Mancha and Bodegas Portia in Ribera del Duero. The vineyard is the origin of our wines. Bodegas Portia owns 160 hectares in the area of Roa, Gumiel de Izán, Villanueva and Gumiel de Mercado, in the heart of Ribera del Duero. The land is essential, from where our wines are born, a land which provides a number of wines which have temperament and personality with an intensely aromatic profile and violet tones on a slightly sticky and smooth palate. The winery, designed by Norman Foster, the building´s greatest success lies in the perfect functionality of its different areas, optimised through the use of noble materials, perfectly set out from the centre of this star which has risen from the earth.
