Bodegas Ondarre, is based in Viana, a historic town six kilometres from Logroño, Rioja's capital. Founded in 1986 it has quickly become one of the standout producers in the region with its elegant and distinguishable style. Their most acclaimed wines are their Reservas, which win top awards and critical approval every year. They attribute their success to the hard work in the vineyards and their continual investment into the winery and barrel stock. They use both French and American oak casks to help them obtain the incredible character in their wines. As well as their Reservas they produce a few thousand cases of a single varietal Graciano. A real rarity due to the low yielding nature of the vine.
Senorio de Ondarre Blanco is made from the white Tempranillo grape grown on the slopes of Ribera del Ebro. The vines are grown in clay based soils with a high iron and chalk content. These soils tend to stay cooler and help to retain water, producing bold wines.
