Duquesa de la Victoria
When this project was started, we wanted to make a very female wine. A tribute to that woman that has always been a key pillar in the agricultural holding houses, that working and constant woman that is always ready to be there. That woman with character and strong personality. A passionate wine, very attractive, sensual, aromatic, elegant and seductive from the beginning until its aftertaste that is long and persistent.
Mrs. Jacinta Martinez of Sicily and Santa Cruz was born in Logroño, on August 16th, 1811. She spent her youth in her house on Ruavieja Street number 19, a building of the sixteenth century, where the restaurant "La Reja Dorada" is currently located.
She met General Baldomero Espartero when he was stationed in Pamplona, after being released. He was imprisoned by the followers of Simón Bolivar during the Viceroyalty of Peru in The American Colonies Independence War. They were married on September 13th, 1827.
In spite of this age difference, she always had a notable influence on her husband and he did not make any an importat decision without taking her opinion into account as evidenced by the two hundred and forty-two letters compiled by the Count of Romanones in his book “Espartero, The General of the people”.
She was a very learned woman in those days. She obtained the tittle of Duchess from his husband when he was appointed Duke when the Civil War ended due to the negotiations with General Maroto with the Vergara Convention on August 31th, 1839.
