The Wines!!
Rioja Bodegas Ontanon Blanco Viura 2017 $15.99
12.5% ABV
Viura is characterized by its vibrant and lively expression of the clay and limestone-rich soil in which it is grown.
The Ontanon Viura is aged for nearly six months in oak and for an additional six months in bottle prior to release.
The wine displays subtle hints of a lifted floral component as well as a voluptuous mouth-feel, reminiscent of tropical fruit, grapefruit, a touch of white pepper and toast.
It is well balanced, with a fine line of natural acidity and a round, full bodied profile that pairs perfectly with seafood, fish, cream-based pasta sauces and roast chicken.

Rioja Bodegas Ontanon Crianza 2016 $16.99
14.0% ABV
Raquel, Rubén and María Pérez Cuevas are part of the fifth generation of the Pérez Cuevas family to carry on the tradition of grape growing in the southern part of Rioja.
Their father, Gabriel, inherited a portion of his family's vineyards, located in the high mountain slopes of the Sierra de Yerga mountains just south of the River Ebro in Rioja Baja.
When he took over in the early 1980s, Gabriel  began making wine from these vineyards rather than selling the fruit as his ancestors had.
He was determined to produce wines that embodied the region of Quel, where his family had deep roots and where he believed the highest quality wines from Rioja were produced.
He began to sell his wines, then labeled as “Arteso”, in the local area and later throughout Spain.

Rioja Bodegas Ontanon Riserva 2011 $29.99

14.0% ABV

Subtle dusting of modernity.
It has a wonderful sense of terroir that captures an image of deep, mineral-rich, unforced extract – nothing out of place or obtuse in any way.
What sets this winery apart is their ability to harness a special piece of land in a medium-weight, regal style that is not afraid to stand up for what it believes in:
a new definition of Rioja that finds just as much solace in today as it does in yesterday.
