Ostatu is a family winery located in the town of Samaniego, in Rioja Alavesa. It has been in operation since 1970, when they began to produce and market their own wines. Although it was not until that year that what is now known as Bodegas Ostatu was founded, the family's wine history began in the sixteenth century, when underground wines were made.
This legacy has served the Sáenz family of Samaniego to learn the craft and more traditional techniques of winemaking. This, together with the latest innovations that have been incorporated by the younger generations, results in the production of quality wines that reflect the Rioja-Alavesa lands.
The winery has 36 hectares of own vineyards located in several plots belonging to the municipality of Samaniego. This area is characterized by its clay-calcareous soils and by its climate halfway between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic. These conditions are ideal for the cultivation of strong and quality vines that give the best grapes.
To maintain the quality of the vines it is important to take care of them properly. Therefore, Ostatu is committed to organic fertilizer and grafting scarce varieties, always respecting the sustainability of the terroir.
Bodegas Ostatu has two different collections of red, white and rosé wines: on the one hand the unique wines of Ostatu, made with the grapes of the most extraordinary estates of the winery that represent the maximum properties of the terroir; on the other hand there are the conventional wines, where the most traditional and characteristic wines of Rioja Alavesa are grouped.
In addition to wines, the Ostatu winery also produces Ostatu Extra virgin olive oil, from the family's own olive groves planted on the same plots as the vineyards. This oil is made 100% with the variety of Arroniz.
