Señorío de Líbano

Señorío de Líbano, roots and origen

Some names seem to carry their essences in their very sound. The name Sajazarra evokes resonances of firmness and robustness, of the same vigor that the centuries-old stones of its castle still proudly display, of the majesty exhibited by its towers, its machicolations, its arrow slits. Sajazarra brings echoes of power, the power that its fortified enclosure witnessed during the many bloody conflicts between the medieval kingdoms that its battlements bore witness to.

And around Sajazarra, names laden with history and stories also revolve. That of the Count of Nieva, Lord of the original fortress built in the 13th century and ancestor of Don Diego López de Zúñiga y de Velasco, Viceroy of Peru. Or that of Don Pedro Fernández de Velasco, owner of the stronghold in the 15th century, whom Enrique IV appointed Constable of Castile. Or the humblest of them all, Juan Martínez, a native of Arnedo so devout to his Virgin of Vico that she released him from the castle dungeons so that he could fulfill his fervent wish to attend Saturday Mass.

In our times, the name Sajazarra is linked to the Líbano family, who acquire the fortress, much worn by the years, and begin to restore it with care and enthusiasm. Then, the castle reveals its best-kept secret to them, some wine presses and a wine cellar. Perhaps an act of gratitude, perhaps a sign.

From that precise moment, an exciting project begins: land is acquired on the slopes of the Montes Obarenes, an ideal location due to its clay-limestone soil sheltered from the winds; vineyards are cultivated, predominantly with Tempranillo grapes; the grapes are harvested at the end of October, as in this extreme area of Rioja Alta; and the first vintage is crafted in a strictly artisanal manner. Finally, in 1973, the first wine is obtained. After confirming its excellent quality, on par with the best wines of the region, it is marketed, the number of barrels is increased, the facilities are adapted, and the winery is relocated to newly built structures located in the castle gardens, carefully designed to respect the aesthetic harmony of the surroundings.

This is how Señorío de Líbano and one of its brands, Castillo de Sajazarra, are born—a wine stamped with its roots and origin.
