Bodegas Ontañón

Logroño, La Rioja, Spain

The homage to wine at Ontañon – El Templo del Vino is a fun and inclusive experience for all wine enthusiasts. It serves as a way for people to express their admiration for the profound aspects of wine, such as its connection to nature, life, inspiration, culture, art, music, spirituality, and friendship. The ultimate goal is to foster a community of wine lovers who can come together to appreciate and enjoy this enchanting elixir.

For over 80 years, the Pérez Cuevas family has dedicated themselves to the land. Their winemaking journey began in their ancestral winery in Quel, a village with a rich winemaking tradition spanning over 300 years. As their passion grew, they felt compelled to share their profound respect and awe for their wines with the world. This led to the establishment of Ontañon – El Templo del Vino in Logroño, a unique place that goes beyond being just a winery. It also serves as a museum, where their wines age under the watchful gaze of ancient gods and legendary heroes, depicted through sculpture, stained glass, and paintings. This homage to wine, deeply rooted in their cultural heritage, is showcased through the Culto al Vino at Ontañon.

Preserving and caring for the surrounding nature is a lifetime duty for the Pérez Cuevas family. They understand that every part of nature is represented in their wines. From mountains to soil to raindrops, each element plays an integral role in crafting their wines. With great pride, they tend to their vineyards in the most sustainable and efficient way possible. Nature, expressed so beautifully in Ontañon wines, keeps the family tradition alive by embracing the work in the vineyard. They consider it their duty to preserve this incredible legacy, passing it down from generation to generation.

Ontañon’s vineyards and wineries are the realization of a lifelong dream for the Pérez Cuevas family. The village of Quel, where the family has its beginnings, has been a benchmark for viticulture in Rioja Oriental for centuries. For over 80 years, they have cultivated their vineyards, and now Raquel, Leticia, Rubén, and María, belonging to the fourth generation, carry on the family’s legacy through their wines, origins, and the unique way they pay tribute to wine itself. The love for wines and their vineyard land is passed down, ensuring that someday, the fifth generation will continue this cherished tradition.

At Ontañon – El Templo del Vino, visitors can discover sculptures, paintings, and stained glass dedicated to wine mythology. The venue hosts music concerts, book presentations, rituals to welcome the upcoming seasons, and a myriad of cultural events.

Ontañon is more than just a winery. It is a place of homage, where the beauty and inspiration of wine are celebrated through art, culture, and a deep connection to the land. The Pérez Cuevas family’s commitment to quality, sustainability, and the preservation of their heritage shines through in every bottle, inviting wine lovers to join them in this journey of appreciation and enjoyment.
