Bodegas Ostatu is situated in the Rioja Alavesa region of North Spain.
The Ostatu wines are the result of the experience of the Sáenz de Samaniego family, and of a number of external and internal factors that together mean that our wines have a style of their own, due to the influence of the microclimate and the characteristics of the soils that our vineyards grow on.
Most of our vines are planted on ochre coloured chalky-clay soils that have the fundamental nutrients for the development of the grape types that we use for making our wines, and it is during the wine-making process that we pay special attention to the basic principles that lead to our objective of making wines with their own personality.
At Ostatu we are convinced that a great wine is born in the vineyard. This is why we make our wines from our own vines, which have been planted, pruned, taken care of, and harvested by the family. This is the best way to ensure the quality of our Ostatu wines.
Our vines come from the very old vines that were planted by past generations of the family, so we have been able to select the very best vines to use to replant our younger vineyards, always using the local grape types found in the Rioja Alavesa: Tempranillo, Graciano, Mazuelo, Garnacha, Viura and Malvasía.
