Always Pionerring since 1889
Ana and Jesús Martínez Bujanda, 5th generation of Valdemar Family, have put body and soul into expanding horizons in the world of wine, continuing the family's passion since 1889. For decades, we have honored the terroir by collecting the tradition of our ancestors and innovating to help it give its best.
We never stop searching for lands, varieties and techniques with which to take the art of winemaking one step further. We are always awake. Always pioneering.
Our goal: "To make our wines a path to a better future". We allow nature to interact with our vineyards, enriching them and turning them into sustainable wine agrosystems.
WE ARE COMMITTED TO SUSTAINABILITY
The fifth generation is initiating a new way of understanding viticulture based on biodiversity.
A project that will mark the future of the other family vineyards, and with which we intend to promote the diversity of the ecosystems of the area, making the vineyard an active part of them. In this way we promote, on the one hand, the sustainability of the crop, and on the other, the character and personality of its fruit.
The new geographical indication created by the Rioja Qualified Designation of Origin. It distinguishes those wines from vineyards or sites that meet strict quality requirements directly linked to their terroir. Our maximum expression of the family's best estates, reflected in two wines: Conde Valdemar Finca Alto Cantabria Blanco and Espumoso Gran Añada.
SINGLE ESTATE WINES
We select among our best estates those that have a history, a personality, a special variety for which one day we decided to bet. In each harvest, the treasure that their fruits hide gives rise to this exclusive selection of wines, brimming with passion and originality.
Our most recognized and prestigious brand. An exquisite selection of grapes from the different family estates results in a collection of elegant and timeless wines, designed to delight palates that value character and tradition.
The union of two worlds: Rioja and the USA. A wine made to inspire. The project is forged between constant travels of the family in both directions and meticulous work by its technical director, who is responsible for merging the experiences lived in both Rioja and Washington.
In 2019 we return to open new horizons by building our own American dream:
The creation of the first non-US winery within the Washington State Wine appellation, in the prestigious winemaking area of Walla Walla.
There, we have united the exceptional personality of the lands of the state of Washington and the best Rioja tradition to give rise to wines that are unique in the world.
