The winery is located in Cenicero, 20 kilometers from Logroño, in the center of the Spanish Rioja sub-area Rioja Alta. It was founded in 1970 by Enrique Forner (1925-2011), who had lived in France for a long time and, with his brother, owner of the Château de Camensac
and until 1986 also the Château Larose-Trintaudon
was. As a consultant in the construction of the winery was the famous professor Émile Peynaud
(1912-2004). The prestigious name allowed the noble friend of the owner Juan Noguera, Marqués de Cáceres to use. The Bodega is considered a pioneer of the renaissance of the Rioja since the 1970s. There is no own vineyard, the grapes are bought by local winegrowers in Cenicero and the surrounding area. For this purpose, the best vineyards in the area were selected and long-term contracts were signed to ensure both premium quality grapes and proper vineyard management of these vineyards.
A new viticulture school was founded with the aim of fully expressing the character of each plot of particularly ancient vineyards. A winemaking team is responsible for the vinification. There are 40,000 oak barrels for the expansion. The red wines are fruity and less oak-accented than usual in Rioja expanded. In the case of white wines, barrels are largely dispensed with. The flagship "Gaudium" is blended from Tempranillo (95%) and Graciano (5%) and aged 18 months in new French oak barrels and another 24 months in the bottle. About half of the production is exported to 120 markets worldwide.
