Enrique Forner created Marqués de Cáceres in 1970. As a youth, he worked in the wine trade, and his grandparents and father established “Vinicola Forner,” which produced, marketed, and exported wines in Sagunto, Valencia, Spain. While exiled in France owing to the civil war, he began his wine adventure in 1952. He purchased grand cru chateaux classes in Bordeax, the Rhone Valley, and the Loire Valley. But when he returned to Spain in 1968, he picked Cecinero and La Rioja to pursue his winemaking goals. Christina Forner, his granddaughter, is carrying on both his desire and his legacy today, adhering to tradition while keeping up with the present.
