Vallemayor S.L. is a family bodega located in Fuenmayor, at the heart of Rioja Alta, where it has 60 hectares of estate-owned vineyards plus another 60 hectares of vineyards owned by local growers who habitually supply the company, over which the bodega exercises direct control (determining tending schedules and treatments).
At our facilities we bring together the most modern technology with the traditional values inherited from the growers that preceded us to achieve wines that historically have been, and today continue to be, the ultimate form of expression of our land.
Our ageing hall holds 3,000 new 225 litre barrels, of which 35% are made of French oak and 65% of American oak.
18 hectares of vineyards divided into four plots located in the valley lying between Fuenmayor and Navarrete. Tempranillo, Graciano and Mazuelo more than 30 years with production limited to 5800 kg/ha share the clay soils of these plots.
Vineyards in irrigated valleys tend to produce large amounts of grapes whose quality can only be assured with strict controls to limit production, such as pruning, thinning and green harvests, all of which are undertaken at Bodegas Vallemayor.
This allows us to guarantee the quality and health of our grape production from irrigated plots, for very fine wines that are perfect for the Vallemayor blends.
