Martínez Bujanda is one of Rioja’s top bodegas, named by Wine Spectator as among the top 50 world producers 9 years in succession, and by Wine & Spirits as Best in Spain. From their state of the art winery, this 2016 is a silky, light style of Rioja.
"Lovely, appetising, bright summer fruits – a lighter style of Rioja and delicious for it"
Beth Willard Buyer for Spain
When Familia Martínez Bujanda moved into their ultra modern winery in 1984, they amazed the world with their fruit rich, modern style Rioja. 30 years later, their wines still impress judges and consumers alike. They pride themselves on using only estate grown fruit, handcrafted by Gonzalo Ortiz, an expert winemaker who also sits on the approval board of the Rioja council (consejo) that taste-tests new vintages and awards them ratings. Familia Martínez Bujanda was the first winery we bought from in Spain back in the 1980s, and down the years they’ve remained one of our most supportive suppliers. This is benchmark modern Rioja, using the best of the 2016 vintage, with juicy berry fruit and subtle spice. Great with cured hams and grilled lamb.
