The history of Bodegas Barahonda begins around 1850, when Pedro Candela Soriano began to produce and sell small quantities of wine locally until Antonio Candela García, in 1925, founded a small winery. It was subsequently taken over by his son, Antonio Candela Poveda, who made it grow and evolve over the years.
With the need to create higher quality wines, Bodegas Barahonda was founded in 2006, which is currently run by Antonio and Alfredo, the fourth generation of the Candela family. From the small wine exploitation to the modern winery that produces quality wines appreciated in international markets, four generations have passed knowledge and tradition from father to son. We, the Candela family, have dedicated our lives to wine and Barahonda is the visible result of this passion.
The winery building stands out with its characteristic silhouette of simple and symmetrical lines in contrast to the old farmhouses that surround it. Even so, it is perfectly integrated into the landscape of the valley, built with traditional materials and surrounded by the vineyards that provide the precious raw material. You can visit the modern winemaking facilities located inside, taste its products and contemplate the landscape while enjoying an exquisite meal in the restaurant located on the upper floor.
At Barahonda we make structured, expressive wines with intense colour and flavour; complex wines with character that every year reap awards, recognition and high scores from the world’s leading critics. As symbolised by Barahonda’s iconic image, our wines are united to the land, made from the vine, giving the vineyard the care it deserves as an essential part of the personality of a quality wine.
