About
The name Valenciso is an acronym of our founders last names: Luis Valentin and Carmen Enciso. Both have been working in the riojan wine industry for 35 years, and it’s been 21 years since they made the decision to fulfill the dream of their lives: Bodegas Valenciso. A small riojan wine house of big prestige! We are currently in the process of turning ecological, after several years of practicing sustainable viticulture. If you visit us Luis Valentin and Carmen Enciso will offer you their personal attention, and tell you why our Valenciso is a great rioja that surprises. We do visits in both Spanish, English and French! Our wines are elaborated in concrete tanks, before passing them over to French oak barrels, instead of the often-used American oak. All of our wines score over 90 points in the national as well as international guidebooks, and our reserva 2012 has been considered one of the best reservas in rioja by the admirable journalist Tim Atkin. Come visit and try for your self!

Yet another excellent visit

Today our tasting guide was the very beautiful Clara. Her English was superb and her knowledge of the wine beyond excellence. If you are in the area, this bodega should not be missed. Truly top quality wines and of real value.

A hidden gem
May 2019
If you are thinking about visiting Rioja Alta and you are interested in learning something new, this is the place. Must be the best kept secret in the area. Luis and Carmen makes fantastic white vines and they also have a rose that must be tested. They have a different philosophy bringing the best from France to Rioja Alta.

Louis we love you
Nov 2017 • Couples
This is only a small winery, but oh so worth a visit, and Louis the owner gave us the excellent visit in English. What a lovely, lovely gentleman. If we had not had a table booked for lunch we could have spent the whole afternoon tasting with him and listening to his anecdotes. The wine is excellent too.

Absolutely BLIC
Nov 2014 • Friends
Blic stands for Balance, Length Intensity and complexity. These wines have it in abundance. As does the winery and all who work there. Enrique is so passionate about his wines and his enthusiasm is infectious. Great detailed tour with an in depth tasting, Fabulous. Also the local restaurant is excellent also showing their wines

Perfect wine
Aug 2013 • Couples
First time we tried this wine at St.Petersburg. It was very limited shipping only 300 bottles. It was 93 points by Parker. We liked it so much that when we travelled in Spain we decided to visit Rioja and find Bodega Valenciso. We did not reserve just arrived. We were met by Diego he was very surprised that we were coming from Russia cause only a few bottles were delivered to Russia. He was very pleasant and suggest us an excursion. After that we are looking for Valenciso in all countries in the world while traveling. For us was pleasure to find this wine even in Las Vegas. Thank you very much for a great wine!
