The winery Marañones was born from the connection of two people and their way of understanding the countryside and viticulture. Fernando García Alonso, from Madrid, an agronomist and winemaker, and J. Fernando Cornejo, owner of the winery and vineyards. Together they have established a philosophy of elaboration that seeks to convey all that subtle mixture of nuances derived from the characteristics of the soil, the climate, the vineyards, the processes of elaboration and their way of being and of realizing them.
Mostly it is an area where Grenache predominates, but also a small percentage of Morenillo. As for white, the Royal Albillo, an autochthonous variety of the area that springs very soon, up to a month before Garnacha.
