The first European winery in Washington State
After five generations of winemaking, Valdemar (Rioja) is thrilled to open the first European winery in the wine-growing region of Walla Walla in Washington State: Valdemar Estates.
This is a boutique-type winery that aims to become a benchmark in this designation of origin.
Valdemar’s owner Jesus Martinez Bujanda Mora said: “Our family has been growing grapes and making wine in Rioja for 130 years. We were looking for a unique region to develop a new project and I knew about Washington State’s potential due to my studies in Seattle. I brought my family here and we all fell in love with Washington State. This is a unique place with amazing vineyards! We are grateful and honoured to be part of the next chapter of Washington State wine.”
