130 years of history that began on a small, narrow stone track in Oyón

A story of wine that begins back in 1889 with Joaquín Martínez Bujanda, the first generation of this winery saga who at the time was already making wine in Oyón, the family’s native town. His son Marcelino followed in his steps, as did his grandson Jesús who, along with his son of the same name, and currently chairman of the winery, set up Bodegas Valdemar in the 1980s.

At present, Jesús Martínez Bujanda, fourth generation, along with his children Jesús and Ana, fifth generation, continue to forge ahead in their eagerness to surprise and enchant consumers with novelties that offer something personal, a distinguishing touch. The pioneering gene that drove Jesús Martínez Bujanda to break the mould back in the 1980s by producing emblematic wines such as the first white wine fermented in barrels, and who later went on to launch the first Maturana and White Tempranillo varietal wines, has clearly been inherited by his children, Ana and Jesús. Both are responsible for expanding the winery’s horizon by disembarking in Walla Walla (USA), thus becoming the first non-American winery to set up there.

Nestled among the mesmerizing hillsides of Rioja, the vineyards of the estate release distinct aromas in the surroundings. The family grows a broad array of vines in their 300 hectares of vineyards. It includes top quality Tempranillo Tinto, Graciano, Mazuelo, Garnacha, Maturana Tinta, and Viura, along with fruity Tempranillo Blanco, Sauvignon Blanc, and Verdejo. Producing quality wines, Conde Valdemar wines stand out, the tradition of innovation. And its estate wines, which are the exquisite result of meticulous work in the vineyards where the native grapes of Rioja are cared for to make the best wines. All under the Rioja Alavesa DO labels.
