Bodegas Ontanón is a family-owned winery located in Rioja. Over 250 hectares of vineyard land sit high to begin one of Rioja’s outstanding winemaking centers for three centuries. The owners take pride in maintaining this beautiful land as it supports their family tradition in wine. Their motto is “passion for the vine, passion for the wine and passion for the art.”
Hotel Marqués de Riscal
Designed and built by Frank O. Gehry, one of the world's most renowned architects and author of works of art like the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, The Hotel Marqués de Riscal, A Luxury Collection Hotel merges deep rooted wine-growing tradition with twenty-first century avant-garde design. Elciego, the hotel's spectacular curves, titanium roof and asymmetry of walls provide an elegant contrast to the historic wine cellars designed in 1858 by the architect Ricardo Bellsola.
The idea of making wine from a single terroir was unheard of in Rioja. Mixing grapes from different areas in the region was the norm. With this attitude in mind, Contino must be seen as one of the instigators of the Rioja wine revolution. Owning 62 hectares, bunches ripen well on this location and result in outstanding wine.
