WINERY

Guelbenzu’s history goes back to 1851, when it was reported that taxes were paid in demijohns of wine sold by Don Martín María Guelbenzu.
 
It was his son, Miguel Guelbenzu, who modernised and developed the winery, gaining significant awards in 1880 in the form of medals and accolades which were to form an integral part of the company’s image and to figure on the labels of its range of wines, as can still be seen today.
 
Several generations later, Don Ricardo Guelbenzu took over the reins of the winery, setting in motion a new era of growth and development, which began in 1992 with the launch of what were to become the flagships of our new range of wines, Guelbenzu Evo and Azul. The range was completed in 1999 with the addition of the winery’s iconic brand, Guelbenzu Lautus.

Evo means “duration of eternal things”, and with this name we sought to mirror this wine’s ability to age and improve over time. The name Lautus refers to “laureate” or “award-winning”, and was attributed to convey the renown that this wine was expected to achieve in its future.  
 
At a later date, in 2010, the winery took on a new challenge, when it inaugurated its new wine-making facilities in Vierlas (an area along the border between Aragon and Navarra), in the locality of Lombana, where new brands linked to this new location were then launched.
 
The prevailing concept during the construction of the winery was respect for the environment, optimizing space and fostering optimal conditions for temperature controlled storage, having managed to obtain facilities that are perfectly integrated into the landscape and vineyards and, at the same time, are excellent for the making and aging of Guelbenzu wine.
