About Finca Antigua

Finca Antigua (D.O. La Mancha). It meant a new impulse in Familia Martínez Bujanda’s trajectory. An extreme environment for vine cultivation that, far from the traditional and uniform extensions of La Mancha, offers extraordinary possibilities for innovation in winemaking.

Finca Antigua, at an altitude of over 900 meters, has 421 hectares of vineyards in production and 550 hectares of Mediterranean scrubland. In the different plots, foreign varieties with great potential for adaptation to the terroir are grown, while also conserving the native varieties. They are used to produce a collection of surprising, creative and avant-garde wines that express the personality of this unique terroir.
