Join us on Wednesday, March 31 at 6 p.m. for an extraordinary tasting event featuring five exquisite wines from Valdemar Estates in Walla Walla, Washington. Immerse yourself in the rich history of a winery that spans two continents and five generations, while savoring flavors that beautifully encapsulate the fusion of Spanish heritage and American innovation. Guiding us through this journey is Valdemar Estates’ gifted winemaker, Devyani Gupta, who brings her unique perspective and love for the craft to every wine she produces.
Valdemar Estates traces its roots back to 1889, when Joaquin Martínez Bujanda started a family tradition of winemaking in the town of Oyón, Northern Spain. His descendants kept this tradition alive and established Bodegas Valdemar in the 1980s.In a bold move in 2019, the family expanded their horizons and founded Valdemar Estates in Washington State, the first winery in the area with international ownership.
