Bodegas Valdelana


The Valdelana Family has been making wine for 14 generations in the same place, Elciego. But the story goes beyond the production of wine since there are traces of the existence of Elciego back in the 1st century AD.


Currently, the owner of the winery is Juan Jesús Valdelana, who broke into the wine world in 1980, buying his first vineyards from a winery in Elciego, thus expanding the family farm. In 1989 he was selected, along with 14 other winemakers from the Rioja Alavesa area, to receive training in viticulture, oenology and marketing, obtaining the title of oenologist in 1991. He is the one who carried out the last extensions of the building and launched into the conquest of new goals, counting on his credit with the wisdom of the wine growers of his family.


The last generations, Judit Valdelana (Director of the commercial and marketing department) and Juan Valdelana (Technical Director and oenologist) continue with the same enthusiasm as our ancestors, expanding our wines to many corners of the world and merging family tradition with the latest wine trends. .


"The wine is like a melody, the vines are the notes, the weather the chords and the winemaker is the composer hoping you like the songs he composes for you."


Bodegas Valdelana belongs to Rioja Alavesa, one of the three sub-areas of the Rioja Qualified Denomination of Origin, located between the Ebro river to the south and the Sierra de Cantabria, which protects us from the strong cold in the north.


The characteristics of the area make our products as special and award-winning as the land where they are made, the Rioja Classified Designation of Origin.


Soils


Clay-calcareous, it is the core of quality. It is the most difficult to work with, the poorest, but the one that offers the best wines. A great wine needs poor, low-fertilized soils, old vines, and no fertility is needed.


Climate


The microclimate that accompanies our vineyards is mainly the Mediterranean, with an Atlantic character and reflections of the continental. It is the key factor, a dry and sunny climate.


Grape varieties


The experience of winegrowers and the passage of time have made a natural selection of grape varieties that showed the best adaptation qualities and that were capable of providing high quality wines. 80% of the wine they produce is made from the Tempranillo grape variety. Other varieties that we mainly grow are Viura, Malvasia, Mazuelo and Graciano.
