TastersGuildNY Marques De Caceres A Brand of International Renown!

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Speaker: Luis Burgueno, Export Manager, Marques De Caceres

Marqués de Cáceres is presently managed by Cristina Forner, Enrique Forner's daughter. Cristina was born in the Loire Valley (France) and graduated at the “Ecole Supérieure de Commerce” in Bordeaux where she also took part in various courses at the Oenological Institute. At the age of 30, she arrived in Logroño to join the family bodega, Marqués de Cáceres, for which she is now responsible.

From the outset, prestigious oenologists have supported and co-operated with the bodega. Firstly, Emile Peynaud who was Enrique Forner’s right-hand man, since the bodega was founded until 1992 and now, his successor, Michel Rolland. Both have contributed towards positioning the bodega within the wine sector as a leading company in innovation and wine technology.

It has taken forty years of commitment and efforts to create unique wines and to position Marques de Caceres brand in over 120 countries worldwide.
