Bodegas Licinia

Basic Info

Bodegas Licinia is an estate focused on the production of one wine made by three visionaries who together share a passion for the immense potential of the vineyards of southeast Madrid. Winemakers Oscar, and Victor Algora, along with Jose Ramón Lissarrague, one of Spain’s most highly regarded viticulturists, are the heart and soul of Bodegas Licinia. The winery is located in the Vinos de Madrid DO, an area quickly growing in prominence and making some of Spain’s best wines. The bodega is situated in the town of Morata, called ‘Licinia’ during Roman times. The mantra at Licinia is “no compromises.” In a blind tasting of 200 wines held in early 2009 by a panel of 50 distinguished winemakers, Licinia was named the best red wine in Spain. This result was achieved with the 2006 Vintage of Licinia, which happened to be the very first vintage! Not bad for a little warehouse on the outskirts of Madrid.
