Rubén Magallanes, a true lover of the Calatayud area

Rubén Magallanes, winemaker in Bodegas San Alejandro


I'm Rubén Magallanes, winemaker in Bodegas San Alejandro for over 17 years.

I was born in Ponferrada (León) and since I was small, winemaking awoke big interest in me, so I decided to make these studies in the School of Enology and Viticulture in Requena (Valencia)

My spirit of continuous improvement led me to work in different wineries nationals and internationals in countries like Chile, France and Argentina. Also in BSA I have had the opportunity to work closely with Chilean, Australian, French, South Africans and New Zealanders winemakers, allowing me to learn new production techniques and other ways to understand enology.

I define myself as a true lover of the Calatayud area because of its undisputed potential and privileged nature for growing grapes.

In all these years, we have seen how we have been growing through hard work and your trust.

In this space I will be in charge of comment threads of enology and tasting, making online courses... it will be very entertaining and close for knowing about wine don't be longer something snob and become something for everyone. Because wine brings people and makes more pleasant the best evenings. I hope getting it!

I remain at your entire disposal and I hope that we can gather soon to talk about wine.

Warm greetings,


Rubén Magallanes.
