One wine made in Baños de Rioja won one of the awards of the wine contest at the Universal Exposition of 1878 (Paris): it was the wine entered by Eugenia de Montijo, Empress of France and the owner of a vineyard with great quality potential. In 1996, the Hernáiz family purchased that same estate, and brothers Eduardo and Victor Hernáiz took charge of the project aimed at producing Rioja with a terroir and single vineyard focus. In addition the winery will make village wines Las Cenizas to be released in 2018. The Salagon wines offer Rioja in a classic and traditional style.
