Wine maker notes
Raquel, Ruben and Maria Perez Cuevas are a part of the third generation of the Perez Cuevas family to carry on a tradition of winemaking in the southern part of Rioja (Rioja Baja). Their father, Gabriel, inherited parcels of his father´s vineyards just outside the township of Quel on the higher slopes of the Sierra de Yerga mountain range. When Gabriel took over in the early 1970s, he began making wine from these vineyards rather than selling the fruit, as had been done in decades past. He was determined to produce wine that not only reflected the purest expresion of his family´s beloved vineyard land but also embodied the region of Quel, where his family had a long history and where he believed the highest quality of wines from Rioja were produced. The current generation is proud of the fact that the family has always maintained its vineyard land with as little intervention as possible fruit will be available for generations to come. They recently decided to pursue European Union certification of some of these vineyards as organic, and their first organically grown wine is now available. The Ontanon Ecologico is made of 100% Tempranillo, a grape that is of the utmost importance to the heritage of the family and the region. Ecologico spends five months in barrel before release and reflects all of the best elements of the Ontanon vineyards as well as winemaking style. It is the truest expression of Rioja that can be created with an organic stamp of certification.
