Alonso & Pedrajo is the result of a close and long friendship between two families who encouraged each other to embark on the dream of making their own wine together. In 2011 they located the land, and in 2013 they undertook their first harvests.
The vineyards are located at Finca La Cala, located in Villalba de Rioja, at the eastern end of the Montes Obaranes. Villaba is characterized by being an area of transition between the climates that make up its environment, mainly the Continental climate, but at the same time with an important Atlantic influence. Its diversity of calcareous clay soils give it an exclusive typicality.
Alonso & Pedrajo practice responsible viticulture, with exhaustive care of the vineyard and minimal intervention on soils and vines. All their wines are aged for at least 6 months on the lees from yeasts that made the wines ferment spontaneously. Once bottled, the wines remain in the cellar for no less than 3 months for natural wines and at least 12 months for the rest. Wines are aged in barrels, clay jars or concrete tanks, waiting for them to stabilize naturally with the passing of the seasons.
Their philosophy is that wines are not created in the winery, that the best winemaker is the one who intervenes the least, who respects and understands the nature of the grape. The goal for Alonso & Pedrajo is to transfer the unique origin of its vineyards to each glass.
