Now let me give a brief story on the wines from Hacienda Marques de la Concordia -Bodegas Federico Paternina:
Founded in 1896, Federico Paternina establishes this winery on a site featuring cellars dug in the 16th century in Ollauri, Rioja Alta.
1956 is an important year as Paternina hosts a very distinguished figure: Ernest Hemingway. It is widely known Hemingway´s love for Spain, its culture and of course the delicious Paternina wines!
The story of Hacienda [The Home of] Marques de la Concordia (Rioja Baja):
Don José Abascal (1743-1821 †) was named I Marques de la Concordia Española del Peru in 1812 by King Fernando VII of Spain, thus recognizing his personal merits as 25th Viceroy of Peru [1806-1816]. Man of his Age (The Enlightenment), he was an intellectual in the military who promoted important public work in Peru. He also sought to reform society and advance knowledge in the vast territory and the cities he governed on behalf of the King, by making creoles and metropolitan Spaniards work together. This is the origin of the word “Concordia” in his title.
