Bodega y Viñedos Martín Berdugo from Aranda de Duero was selected as one of the wineries to represent the Ribera del Duero in Michael Schachner's video. The video is very informative about the wines of the Ribera del Duero. It gives a short explanation as to why the region produces such spectacular wines, and Michael clarifies the different classifications of the wines: Joven, Barrica/Roble, Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva.
Martin Berdugo rises like a phoenix from the ashes
On the 30th of November 2013 Martin Berdugo threw a party to thank everyone who supported us and helped us get back on our feet after the lightning strike of September the fifth caused a fire in our winery. We were overwhelmed by support we received from other wineries in the Ribera del Duero. We also used the occasion to announce the winners of the fifth edition of our Micro Relatos competition.
A lightning strike causes a fire in Martín Berdugo
On the night of the fifth of September lightning struck martín berdugo, a well known winery in the Ribera del Duero. The building housing our offices, the laboratory, our wine crafting equipment and our vats were destroyed by flames and smoke.
Fortunately, no one was injured and although it hurts emotionally the fire was only limited to our production building. The cellar where we store and age our wines was untouched by the fire, as were our precious vines in the vineyard.
