1973 - 1st Single Estate winery in Rioja. In the times of the Reyes Católicos (Ferdinand of Aragon and Elisabeth of Castille) the distinction of ‘Contino’ was given to 100 elite Guards specially selected to protect the monarchs and their family for life. Contino Pedro de Samaniego was rewarded with the estate of Laserna from which the Contino estate derives its name.
