What began as a story of a family of wine-makers, finally ended in the recognition of a unique personality and the name Muga joined the path of the development of a wine region with a very distinctive character: La Rioja.
The Muga wine cellars were founded in 1932 by Isaac Muga Martínez who originated from a family with strong ties to the wine-making industry and who obtained the Bottlers Registration in 1932.
In the beginning, the Bodegas Muga were to be found in the very heart of Haro. On the death of the founder in 1969, his children Manuel, Isabel, and Isaac Muga Caño took over the reins. These were times of change. Two years later in 1971, they moved their headquarters to their present location in the traditional Station District on the outskirts of Haro. Bodegas Muga continued to grow as the years passed but never lost the spirit of aptitude of a family run company.

The Costa Brava is a coastal region of northeastern Catalonia, Spain, in the comarques of Alt Empordà, Baix Empordà and La Selva, in the province of Girona. Costa is the Catalan and Spanish word for 'coast', and Brava means 'rugged' or 'wild'. In the north-eastern corner of Spain, the vineyard area fans out from the coastal town of Figueres to the French Border. To the east, it runs to meet the sea.

The average temperature is 16°C and there is ample rainfall -600-700 mm- mainlyin winter. There’s a wide heterogeneity of soils in the Empordà, but there’s a predominance of alluvial sediments in the plain and slate in the coast.
