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.

Produced from 40 year old vines grown on the slopes of the Sierra Yergas, around Quel, just south of the River Ebro in Rioja Baja. Predominantly Tempranillo grown in the La Montesa vineyard, blended with Garnacha from Siete Caminos. Following a long maceration period, the wine spends 12 months in 60% American and 40% French oak barrels (both used and new). This is followed by a further 12 months in bottle prior to release.

Ontanon Rioja Crianza wine is an absolute go-to for your classic Rioja style, offering intense black fruit and warm and rounded spice and oak characters on the nose.  A good depth of flavour on the palate with ripe, plush fruit, balancing freshness and supple tannins. A very approachable yet classic Crianza. This wine pairs well with roast chicken and game, meaty pasta and hard cheeses.
