More information :
Ontañón Tempranillo Blanco is made from the rare White Tempranillo grape.
Currently Tempranillo Blanco is found only in the Rioja wine region of Spain.
Only a handful of wine growers in Rioja have Tempranillo Blanco vines.
Bodegas Ontañón saw the potential of this grape and planted in 2010. 2016 was the first vintage of Tempranillo Blanco that they released.
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 vineyard in the early 1980s, Gabriel began making wine from these vineyards rather than selling the fruit as his ancestors had.
Great with poultry, roasted vegetable dishes and cheeses.
