Bodegas Ontañón is a 5th generation family-owned and run winery in Rioja Baja. Here Raquel, Rubén and Maria Pérez Cuevas continue their father Gabriel's work to develop Bodegas Ontañón into one of the most highly-regarded wineries in Rioja.

Made from Tempranillo grapes cultivated in hillside vineyards (600 metres above sea level) in the best parts of Rioja Oriental. The vineyards have clay stone soil with some sandy areas. 80% of the vines are trained in the trellis method and 20% are bush trained. The grapes are chilled for several hours before temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel. Fermentation lasts for approximately 15 days with twice daily remontage. The wine is matured for a minimum of 12 months in American oak, plus one year in bottle, before release. The winery replaces 20% of its barrel stock, with new barrels, each year.

Artesa Rioja Crianza wine is an attractive, modern style of Crianza with lifted aromatics of bramble fruit with some pepper, spice and vanilla. Substantial on the palate, with plummy fruit, ripe tannins and a gently savoury fresh finish. Enjoy with casseroles, red and white meats and mature cheeses.  

Please note: All case wine orders can take between 7-10 days for delivery.
