In the beautiful setting of Laguardia in Rioja Alavesa, Javier San Pedro, Javi Jr. and his assistant winemaker, Pablo Echeverria, concentrate on building an enviable reputation for the very best quality under their Vallobera and San Pedro labels. Javi Jr. succeeded his father in 2005 aged just 19! He lives and breathes winemaking with unstoppable energy and a zest for experimentation and the latest technology. With 80 hectares of prime vineyards, of which the Vallobera vineyard is the highest, the wines are loaded with ripe fruit and complexity, yet with less aggressive tannins, maintaining an elegance which Javi Jr. sees as the most important factor. Add to this a recently refurbished winery and plenty of ambition, and the result is a modern range of wines of the very highest quality.
