Family and Origin

Family and Origin

SANTALBA, the bodega´s name, is a fusion of the first name and surname of its owner and founder: SANTIAGO IJALBA

With its experience accumulated since 1964 in the elaboration and breeding of great Rioja wines, Santiago Ijalba decided to launch his own personal project, Bodegas SANTALBA. Since then the Bodega has maintained an absolutely familiar character and has the support of her children, Roberto and Laura Ijalba Pérez, which combines the wine tradition of the family to which it belongs, with an international wine education.
