|Bodegas Herederos De Perfecto Martínez|
In southern Basque Country, surrounded by vineyards and small lakes, the medieval town of Laguardia rises on a fortified hill. Cars are not allowed in the town as it riddled with two hundred caves underneath the surface where, even nowadays, some of the best wines of Rioja Alavesa are kept.
In one of these caves, six metres below the surface, the Martínez family began their wine enterprise in the 16th century. From the 19th century onwards, Perfecto Martínez starts a new project which, over five generations, has managed to respect tradition and which keeps on producing wines representative of their environment as an identity sign.
