BODEGAS Señorío de Líbano, ROOTS AND ORIGIN

Some names seem to carry their essence in their very sound. The name Sajazarra evokes resonances of firmness and robustness, the same vigor proudly displayed by the centennial stones of its castle, the majesty exhibited by its towers, its battlements, its arrow slits. Sajazarra brings echoes of power, the power experienced by its walled enclosure during the many bloody skirmishes between medieval kingdoms that its battlements witnessed.

And around Sajazarra also gravitate names filled with history and stories. That of the Count of Nieva, Lord of the primitive fortress erected 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 Henry IV named Constable of Castile. Or the humbler one of Juan Martínez, a man from Arnedo so devoted to his Virgin of Vico that she freed him from the castle’s dungeons to fulfill his fervent desire to attend Saturday Mass.

In our times, the name Sajazarra is linked to the Líbano family, who acquired the bastion, heavily worn by the years, and began restoring it with care and enthusiasm. Then the castle revealed its best-kept secret to them: some wine cellars and a press. Perhaps an act of gratitude, perhaps a sign.

From that precise moment, an exciting project began: lands were acquired at the foot of the Obarenes Mountains, an ideal location for its clay-limestone soil sheltered from the winds; vineyards were planted, predominantly Tempranillo; the harvest was carried out at the end of October, as is typical in this extreme area of Rioja Alta; and the first harvest was crafted in a strictly artisanal way. Finally, in 1973, the first wine was produced. After confirming its excellent quality, comparable to the best wines of the area, it was marketed, the number of barrels was increased, the facilities were upgraded, and finally, the winery was moved to newly constructed buildings located in the castle gardens, meticulously designed to respect the aesthetic harmony of the surroundings.

Thus, in the end, Señorío de Líbano was born, along with one of its brands, Castillo de Sajazarra, a wine marked by its roots and origin.
