Historia

 

Sazajarra is located around 10 kilometres to the west of Haro, in the most northern part of La Rioja Alta.

At the end of the 1960s, the Líbano family bought the castle in order to rebuild it and make its home there. In its dungeons there were several very ancient parts related to wine, such as wooden tanks and casks, presses etc.

As only they could have done, they started making their own wine inside the castle, first for their own consumption and later as a company, continuing the castle’s centuries-old tradition of winemaking.

The new winery was created in 1973 in the gardens of the castle and in a singularly beautiful setting. The castle, gardens, winery and vineyards form one unit, making what reporters call a “true chateau”, completed by the wall and the Roman bridge.
