Company details

CARLOS SAN PEDRO
 Carlos San Pedro is face and heart of Bodegas y Viñedos Pujanza, a thoroughbred winemaker who carries the genes of his wine lineage. He has tipped over in his wines the cheery enthusiasm of his commitment with the world of the wine, creating harmonic wines, always with a right balance between fruit and aging, with elegant and deep palates carrying in their name the landmark of a region.
Carlos San Pedro, owner and technical director of Bodegas y Viñedos Pujanza, is also the forth generation of a family of vine-growers, wine-makers and wine merchants of Laguardia. Bodegas y Viñedos Pujanza is his more personal project. A dream, which was born during his childhood and has gone taking shape with the years until become a splendid fact. In 1998, Carlos already has in property 15 has of vineyard and decides to produce his first own wine, his first Pujanza.

LAGUARDIA
Bodegas y Viñedos Pujanza is located in Laguardia, in the heart of Rioja Alavesa, one of the most beautiful villages in Spain, both for its cultural and historical heritage and for the people who live and work its lands.
Winery is situated at the foot of Sierra de Cantabria, surrounded by some of most characteristic vineyards, in an area where altitude starts to be a limiting factor for this crop. It is an exclusive place to contemplate a lovely view from the hill of Laguardia and witness the evolution of the vineyard during the year. Sierra de Cantabria is not only the north border of the Designation. It also operates as a natural frontier for villages and crops of this area creating a perfect climate for the vines.

HISTORY
Bodegas y Viñedos Pujanza starts in 1998 producing only a wine: Pujanza.

While facilities are built, wines are made in the familiar winery until 2001 when first harvest is carried out in the new winery. 2001 was an excellent vintage in this area.  An spacious and simple building, mainly thought for the efficiency and comfort of the daily work. A viewpoint tower crowned the winery, where it has been placed a tasting room, and from where it is possible to enjoy a panoramic view over the vineyards, Sierra de Cantabria and east wall of Laguardia.

Philosophy of the winery is well defined from the beginning. Wine must be produced in the vineyard and so our greatest effort is made there, understanding and having the best knowledge of every single vineyard. In Pujanza we only used grapes form our own vineyards. Some of these plots already belonged to Carlos San Pedro’s family, as Finca La Valcabada, origin of Pujanza Cisma, and other have been bought by him during last years.
