In this sense, Viña Bujanda vineyards´ roots go into clay-calcareous and clay-ferrous soils. The first ones, with a typical ochre color are usual in Rioja Alavesa and part of Rioja Alta. They are ideal for the Tempranillo variety and for the wine ageing. The clay-ferrous soils, with a reddish color and typical in areas such as the Upper Najerilla are poor in organic material and offer light bodied fresh reds and mineral substances that perfectly complement with the ones from the clay-calcareous areas, to offer a perfect balance which has always distinguished the traditional Riojas.
The 127 hectares of Viña Bujanda are divided into 28 plots, between 20 and 70 years old, with an average of 30 years. The vineyards are located in two regions of Rioja; Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa; basically Logroño and Oyón. Although in close proximity, the plots are very different from each other talking about soil compositions and sun exposure.
Viña Bujanda grows only Tempranillo (red) and Viura (white), the two most representative varieties of the wine region that we use to elaborate the wines of our catalogue.
