Finca Museum came about as the start of the expansion process by Grupo Barón de Ley outside La Rioja region, where it originated.
Seeking vine-growing areas where it was possible to maintain the right value for money, the Grupo looked towards the Cigales Appellation of Origin region. Village by village, plaza by plaza, asking all the locals, we finally found a singular vineyard where to build a spectacular winery that today bears the name Finca Museum.
In 1999 we elaborated a test year at an external winery and aged the wine in a former hermitage in Cigales. One year later, the first bottle of Finca Monasterio by Grupo Barón de Ley wine was opened made that year. A new history began.
