Our wine is a tribute to those fifteen generations that have preceded us in time, our grandparents who with their good work, have given us what we are today, a family winery settled in those strong drafts that have seen us grow since 1583.
Valdelana family makes wines for people with sensibility, people who can perceive and appreciate the work and passion that is inside a bottle, in each drink we try to seduce in the aftertaste, most important part of memory being this one that embraces the rest of the senses.
