Unusually for Rioja, all the Valdemar grapes come from the family’s own vineyards (almost 300 hectares), giving unrivalled control over the quality of the fruit at every level. Grapes for the Reserva are grown exclusively in Rioja Alavesa. This Reserva was aged for twenty-six months in barrel, with sixty-five percent American and thirty-five percent French oak.
