Javier San Pedro Ortega, born in Laguardia, is the fifth generation of a wine-maker family. Javier produces his wines with grapes from his own vineyards because the San Pedro’s Family own more than 100 hectares of vineyards in Laguardia.
That 5 year-old boy who cleaned his grandfather’s winery, produced his first wine in 2005 in his father’s winery at the age of 17.
It is in the harvest of 2013, after 8 years giving his personal touch to the family winery, when he decided to undertake his own project. This is based on two different ranges of wine. One the one hand, Cueva de Lobos, it is defined by modern, aromatic and funny wines. On the other hand, Viuda Negra, it pretends recover old vineyards in order to obtain the best quality of each one. Moreover we cannot forget our Anahí, a semi-sweet white wine created and produced in honor of his mother.
This young project soon embodied and is called BODEGAS JAVIER SAN PEDRO ORTEGA. An innovative winery with a young team looking for surprising you and differentiate from the traditional Rioja wine.
We feel our wines have to tell a story. They have to be singular, authentic and innovative wines. They have to transmit the expression and authenticity of our land. Being produced and aged with the maximum respect but from a dynamic and contemporary vision.
