"The 2014 Hado wants to showcase the freshness and typicity of Tempranillo in the zone of Laguardia in Rioja, where Pujanza's vineyards are located. 2014 was an early and warm vintage, and the grapes comes from a diversity of plots in Laguardia. The wine is fermented (malolactic included) in stainless steel vats and matured in French oak barrels for one year. This year he used a lot of grapes from the Valdepoleo vineyard (he doesn't buy grapes, but he doesn't want to sell them, either), so the wine has more character. It's usually a more straightforward wine and it has more freshness, from a clay-rich vineyard; but here, the aromas are fresher and more floral. The palate is lively, fine-grained and tasty. A very good showing for this wine."

Bodegas Pujanza is located in Laguardia, in the heart of the Rioja Alavesa and at the foot of the Sierra de Cantabria - a place where the altitude is regarded as the limit for grape growing. It is the locale that marks the personality of Pujanza wines - the climate, the soils, the know-how passed from generation to generation.
Carlos San Pedro is the fifth generation of a family of growers. He was born and raised among vines, barrels, vats and fermentation aromas from his ancestors’ winery, located below the family home. At the age of 25 he set up his own bodega. Initially, both the vineyards and the winemaking facilities belonged to the family. Subsequently, goal was to recover the fundamental roots of Rioja, focusing on the terroir, with his own grapes and wines from a single vineyard plot.
In 2001 the first vintage from the current bodega was produced. Pujanza currently operates 40 hectares of vines, all within the boundaries of Laguardia. The aim of Carlos San Pedro is to continue in the search for those special vineyards which are destined to be the source of wines with a personality of their own.
