Owing to the whole experience acquired by its founders, Viña Santa Marina was established. This is a young winery situated on a beautiful Estate, 8 km away from Merida.
The bodega is surrounded by 58 hectares of vineyard that will be extended to 110 hectares in the forthcoming years. Firstly, a highly exhaustive selection of grape varieties was carried out based on the wine we intended to launch on the market.
Then, we singled out some varieties such as Tempranillo, Graciano, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, a part of Merlot and some other very original varieties, red and whites, that have never been grown on this area up to the present, but whose performances are under examination.
Secondly, the selection was undertaken by following their patterns accordingly to our soil and climate’s suitability. And, always pursuing quality wines
Vineyard and cellar emerge under the shadow of a granitic mass, The Lamoneda Mountain Range, at whose foot a deep forest of holm oak, cork-oak, wild olive tree, briar, rockrose and other plants have grown…that together with their balsamic aromas become a great company to the wines of the bodega.

The winery is similar to a typical “cortijo extremeño” (a vineyard including land and buildings with some architectonical characteristics of that region), hence we seek to integrate the buildings into the marvellous surrounding landscape
Recent excavations have revealed the presence of a Roman village including a winepress discovery.
These archaeological remains are being protected by the Consorcio Ciudad Monumental Histórico Artística Arqueológica of the city of Mérida (A public entity aimed to manage and organize all the procedures related to the preservation, restoration and evolution of all the artistic richness of Merida).
