Looking back on our memories we remember every single place that was important to us when we were little children. Just by knowing our history you will be able to understand our essence: our past, our present and our future.
In 1634 our ancestor Pedro Valdelana started producing his own wine in one of the underground cellars we keep nowadays. Although that wine was for self-consumption, it preserved the features of tempranillo wines that we currently enjoy.
In 1950 our great-grandfather Pedro Valdelana had to work very hard to expand his vineyard holdings. Some years later, in 1974, our grandfather Isidoro succeeded in commercialising the first bottle labelled Valdelana. He still proudly remembers his beginnings in wine selling.
The winery is currently managed by Juan Jesús Valdelana. He firmly entered the wine market in 1980, when he bought his first vineyards to a winery settled in Elciego and increased the family vineyard holdings. In 1989 he became one of the fifteen vine growers of Rioja Alavesa selected for training in viticulture, oenology and marketing. He finally got his Certificate in Oenology in 1991. He carried out the last enlargements of the winery and set himself new goals. He always relied on the widely known vine growers of his family.
The last generation of this family is represented by us, Judit and Juan Valdelana, who continue working with the same enthusiasm as our ancestors. Combining tradition and innovation, we succeed in making our wines known all over the world.
