When it comes to making excellent wines, old is gold. Although the story of Martín Berdugo goes back centuries, the single-vineyard estate that surrounds our modern winery was planted by its owner, Josefina, in the 1980s with the support of her husband Enrique and their children Antonio, Bruno and Pepa. The soul of our wines is found within our mature vineyard in Ribera del Duero.
Our Joven is a young wine offered for sale the spring after harvest with the aim of conveying an immediate impression of the year’s fruit quality. Its aroma showcases the Tempranillo’s primary fruit profiles. The grapes are picked from the coolest sandy soils, which contain a greater amount of silt and clays, in our vineyard.
