Jose Maria Ryan Murua

Years of Participation

The Spanish wines of family owned-and-operated Bodegas Muriel represent some of the finest from both the Rioja Alavesa and Alvarino regions. Their Chief Winemaker is Jose Maria Ryan Murua, a cousin of the Murua family, who has been making various wines under the family's labels, including Bodegas Muriel, Conde de los Andes and Pazo
Cilleiro. Jose Maria's winemaking philosophy is to allow the grapes to reveal the best expression of their individual terroirs.
