Founded in 1998 by Carlos San Pedro, Bodegas y Viñedos Pujanza is a renowned Spanish winery located in the village of Laguardia, in the heart of the Rioja Alavesa subregion. The estate’s vineyards are spread across various parcels; each carefully selected to represent the area’s diverse microclimates and soil types.
The winery focuses on crafting wines from traditional Rioja grape varieties, including Tempranillo, Grenache, and Graciano. They also work with newer plantings of Viura and Malvasía for their white wines.
Emphasising minimal intervention in both the vineyard and the winery, Bodegas Pujanza places great importance on respecting the natural balance of the vines and allowing the grapes to express their characteristics fully. Carlos San Pedro’s approach to winemaking is rooted in a deep respect for the land and a commitment to sustainable practices. The winery employs modern technology and techniques while remaining true to Rioja’s winemaking traditions.
Among the notable wines produced by Bodegas Pujanza are their single-vineyard wines, or “parcelas,” which represent specific plots with distinct terroir attributes. These wines often receive critical acclaim and are sought after by wine enthusiasts and collectors alike.
