Luzon was born as a union of winemakers and processors to make wines that it sold in bulk. We had to wait until the new millennium for the winery to move towards a new model based on the production of excellent quality wines.
Since 2005, the winery belongs to the Fuertes group, which made investments to technify the winery and boost exports. Little by little the wines were attracting the attention of critics like Robert Parker and Jose Peñín.
Since then, the winery has been looking for more and more vineyards between 35 and 50 years old, planted in dry land and in glass, with which it created its range of author or small wine production.
