Located in the mountainous heart of the most important of the Appellation Rioja wine region, we find the winery that gives our wine its name. Dated as one of the oldest wineries in the area, its origins date back to the 19th century. The winery is integrated into the old buildings of the plot. Tradition and new techniques come together in our winery. From the modern winemaking room that has temperature control where the tanks and equipment are made of stainless steel, to our ageing room, where our wines rest in select French and American oak barrels. Our goal is to make wines that show our differentiated quality, for this we use traditional methods combined with new techniques.
The underground tunnels of the winery, which have been preserved since the Middle Ages. These are underground caves that enabled communication throughout the city in the underground. In this place we can find constant humidity and temperature throughout the year, ideal conditions for resting and improving our wines.
All this work is developed with the experience and extensive trajectory of more than 130 years of work that supports us.

Supervised and selected by himself, Mas de Víctor shows each of the virtues and singularities of the eldest of the family. Victor leaves his mark and personality in each of these wines.
We came up with this brand a few years ago in the UK, one of our most important markets. Our main customers were very satisfied with our wines, and they were increasingly asking for more brands from Victor Fernandez de Manzanos winery.
In response to this request, and after much consideration, it was decided that the name to represent the brand would be More from Victor, a name just for itself says everything.
Más de Víctor is the name of one of the most recognized brands of our group.

Our vineyards in DOCa Rioja have an exceptional climate and soils for the production of high quality wines. Our plots are distributed throughout different municipal terms, which allows us to explore the qualities of each terroir and its singularities. Always carrying out a sustainable viticulture with respect for our environment. Our small plots are specially selected for each type of wine.
The confluence of the Atlantic and Mediterranean climates, with moderate temperatures, medium rainfall and the currents of our unique wind called “Cierzo”, make up an excellent microclimate for growing grapes. We have a diversity of soils among which the three best known predominate: limestone- clay, ferrous- clay and alluvial. Sands, lime and clays together with our vineyards conducted in gobelet and trellis system build an ideal ecosystem for the development of our vineyards.
