With a storied history and wealth of diverse winemaking regions, Spain is one of the most exciting countries for quality wine today. But the Ferrer family has seen much of the country’s wine trajectory unfold as it cultivated a passion for benchmark wine over 150 years of winemaking heritage. Today, the Ferrer family showcases its dedication to luxurious, authentically Spanish wines through the Ferrer Miranda portfolio of wines from Rías Baixas, Ribera del Duero, and Rioja.
Ferrer Miranda draws upon the expertise of winemaker Javier Aladro, a native of sunny Jerez who himself comes from a multigenerational wine family. Though the Ferrer Miranda portfolio hails from three different regions of Spain, Aladro has spent nearly two decades putting down deep roots in each one, developing the expertise necessary to create high-quality, terroir-expressive wines. Aladro’s work is complemented by Gloria Diaz, the winemaker for Valdubón in Ribera del Duero, and Vanessa Insausti, the winemaker for Orube and Amor de Madre in Rioja.
The Ferrer Miranda collection includes four exceptional wines from three separate wineries with distinct regional identities, creating a wide range of wine styles. From the aromatic, vibrant Vionta Albariño from Rías Baixas, to the powerful, structured Valdubón Reserva from Ribera del Duero, and the rich, velvety duo from Rioja Alavesa—Orube Crianza and Amor de Madre Reserva—the Ferrer Miranda portfolio offers a taste of Spanish luxury that is accessible to all.

Located only a few miles from the Atlantic coast, the Vionta winery sits on an exceptional site in the heart of the Salnés Valley, the coolest growing region of Rías Baixas, the birthplace of Albariño. Vionta Albariño is made with grapes from three different subregions, revealing an authentic expression of the granite soils and perpetual sea breezes that define Galicia’s western edge.
In the vast plains of Ribera del Duero, the rugged terrain endures a harsh, arid climate marked by intense heat. Initially established in 1997, Bodegas Valdubón is home to 62 acres of Tempranillo grapes (known locally as Tinto del País, or Tinto Fino), located near the town of Milagros, just two hours north of Madrid. On these high plains, the higher altitude of the vineyards creates perfect ripening conditions for producing structured, age-worthy Valdubón Reserva.
Newly imported to the U.S., the Orube Crianza and Amor de Madre Reserva showcase the merits of Rioja Alavesa, known for its high elevations and rolling hills. Utilizing small fermentation tanks, the winemaking team vinifies each plot of Tempranillo separately, blending quality parcels to craft two distinctive Rioja wines. Both the Orube Crianza and Amor de Madre Reserva wines will be available in the U.S. in May 2021, completing the Ferrer Miranda family portfolio stateside.
Vionta Albariño, DO Rías Baixas
Quintessentially Albariño, this coastal white wine reflects its Rías Baixas origin as sunny, aromatic peach and lemon aromas meet balanced acidity on the palate, leading to a long finish.
Valdubón Reserva, DO Ribera del Duero
Entirely composed of Tempranillo and aged for two years in French and American oak, the Valdubón Reserva exudes rich aromas of ripe red fruit, toasted nuts, and spices atop a powerful yet vibrant palate.
Orube Crianza, DOCa Rioja
A blend of Tempranillo and Graciano aged 12 months in American and French oak, the Orube Crianza displays smoky vanilla notes, roasted coffee, and black fruits. It’s powerful and balanced on the palate, with velvety tannins.
Amor de Madre Reserva, DOCa Rioja
This Tempranillo and Graciano blend is aged in French and American oak 36 months prior to release, giving aromas of vanilla, cocoa, and spices. Well-integrated tannins give way to a powerful, balanced, and elegant finish.
