For generations, the members of the Saenz de Samaniego family have been dedicated to viticulture. In fact, there is evidence of our relationship with the vineyards since the sixteenth century, when our ancestors used a winery located in the neighborhood of Matarredo, with underground drafts excavated in the rock.
Our work philosophy is based on respect for the land what provides us with a way to understand wine and life, focused on the pursuit of excellence through the balance between yesterday and today, without waiting for fashions. A transposable philosophy not only to our style of work, or to our winery, but is present in each of our wines. These are the true reflections of our vineyards, the influence exerted by the Rioja Alavesa microclimate and the soils in which they settle. In short, of our "Terroir". Caring for and being part of the landscape, influencing our ecological vision, and sustainability, are our premises today and tomorrow, which make Ostatu a winery with a well known name. A continuous commitment to quality, working with innovation in our viticulture, processing and management.
Our wines differ in two families:
With good judgment, prudent and mature, that's how our wines are. Three young wines (Tinto, Blanco and Rosado), a Crianza, a Reserva and a new Gran Reserva. All of them elaborated according to the tradition that defines the identity, location and character of the vineyard in Samaniego.
Individuals, different and extraordinary. Selection, Lore, Laderas and Gloria de Ostatu. Wines with their own identity that show us the personality of our most special plots where the particularity of each vintage is the key. Wines from our terroir.
¡ Welcome to our family!
One fine body…
