Juan Valdelana, the main responsible for these good results

It is the result of great teamwork that our wines have achieved such success in this competition, a milestone of which all the generations that have preceded us have been a part. However, the vast majority of award-winning wines today have the seal of Juan Valdelana, who has been connected to the world of wine from a very young age.

Juan Valdelana graduated in oenology from the University of La Rioja (2017), where he won the award for the best final year project, which allowed him to work at the Rioja Regulatory Council and immerse himself in the roots of the DOCa Rioja for a few months. Later he graduated in Agricultural Engineering, which has given him knowledge in all areas of wine preparation. Furthermore, he has had the opportunity to work in wineries in different places in Spain and the world (Tenerife, Rías Baixas, Napa Valley…), which has allowed him to explore other ways of experiencing wine.
