Bodega y Viñedos Martín Berdugo is a family run winery in Aranda de Duero, in the heart of the Ribera del Duero.
In 1990, trusting in the great potential of the newly formed Denominación de Origen de la Ribera del Duero, Josefina Martín Berdugo decided to plant the vines, where they had been planted for over two hundred years by her ancestors. This decision was made with the support and collaboration of her husband Enrique and three children Antonio, Bruno and Pepa.
The first harvests of these "grapes of hope" were sold to other wineries in the Ribera del Duero, until finally in 2000, the winery was built and Martin Berdugo began producing and selling its own wines.
The winery is located on the banks of the river Duero, in the bend just before the Arandilla waters flow into the Duero. Situated on the Castilian meseta, 800 metres above sea level, the extreme climatological conditions make the Ribera del Duero one of the most remarkable and prestigious wine regions in the world.
The winery is in the centre of the vineyard, which is one plot of 104 hectares. A privileged land, formed from river soil, covered in rounded pebbles that hold the heat and humidity, thus enhancing the maturing process. This land gives the grapes their unique flavour and color. 87 hectares of trellised vines are the Tinta Fina or tempranillo variety, the emblematic grape of the Ribera del Duero.

- We tried the barrica and loved it. As a special treat we decided to go for the Crianza. It was sooo good. Definitely one for a special occasion, it was a pleasure to drink. (Posted on 31/08/2015)
