ABOUT BODEGAS VOELOS
Bodegas Voelos is the personal project of renowned winemaker Carlos San Pedro of Bodegas Pujanza. Carlos has created a new range of wines under the Voelos brand by selecting grapes from his own vineyards near the town of Laguardia, as well as others from friends and family north of the Ebro river. He describes the selection of grapes and the project for Voelos wines as "a way of doing, a way of looking, at the future keeping our past present."
Spain’s best known wine producing region. The Oja river (Rio Oja) is believed to have given the region its name. Rioja was the first region in Spain to be awarded the highest DOCa (Denominacion de Origen Calificada) category, due to its proven record in consistently producing top-quality wines. Rioja is divided into three SUBREGIONS: Rioja Baja, Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa. Rioja Baja's climate is warmer and the soils sandier, yielding more alcoholic wines with greater concentration. Rioja Alta has higher elevation and colder weather and is mostly located south of the Ebro river. Rioja Alavesa is the smallest subregion and is exclusively located north of the Ebro river in the provice of Alava (Basque Country).
