Bodegas Corral was founded in 1898 by Don Saturnino Daroca, a born and bred Riojan grower and winemaker, who started planting his first vineyards in Sojuela, a small village near Navarrete. His daughter married Martin Corral who contributed his name and family crest to the winery, a reminder of its family nature to this day.
Bodegas Corral is located right on the Camino Francés (the French pilgrim way). This was awarded World Heritage status and listed as the oldest pilgrim road to Santiago de Compostela. It was within this particular enclave of the route that the San Juan de Acre pilgrims’ hospital was built, the remains of which can be found at the winery.
The winemakers at Bodegas Corral know how to extract the finest qualities from the vines grown on the estate. Their precise and constant care in the vineyards including: pruning, tilling the land, monitoring the first shoots and allowing the grapes slow maturation ensure that when the harvest arrives their effort is rewarded with exceptional grapes and stunning wines.
