Earlier this year, wine prescriber Tim Atkin unveiled his Rioja Special Report 2023 at BCN Wine Week. In this report he recognized our wine tourism project as the best in the DOCa. Rioja and gave excellent ratings to the unique wines of Juan Valdelana.

Our wine tourism project is recognized as the best in the DOCa. Rioja

This popular Master of Wine from the United Kingdom has been preparing the Rioja Special Report every year for almost a decade. He analyzes and evaluates different wines and wineries in the region in this monograph on the Rioja Qualified Denomination of Origin. In this report he has distinguished us as the “Best Winery Experience” of the DOCa. Rioja. In other words, Tim Atkin has pinned the gold medal to our wine tourism project among the more than 300 wineries that he visited during his stay in the area. This distinction is on par with other great awards obtained by the winery, such as the Best Of in Art and Culture award collected in 2018.

Tim Atkin gives high marks to our unique wines

In addition to this excellent recognition, the British prescriber has also valued the unique wines of Juan Valdelana with very high qualifications:

  • Finca Pared de los Curas: 94 points.
  • Finca Tronco Negro: 94 points.
  • Finca Senda de la Traición: 92 points.
  • Santa Crvz de Valdelana: 92 points.

Four outstanding notes for these four wines obtained from our singular vineyards. In case you are not familiar with this project, we are currently the DOCa Rioja winery with the most vineyards of this type, very special estates with very long-lived vines. We have obtained the wines that Tim Atkin has valued with high notes from those vineyards.

This new recognition is another push forward to continue advancing and developing our wine project. Thank you all for being with us and making this possible.
