Ostatu is a small family winery located in the Rioja Alavesa, specifically in the municipality of Samaniego (Álava). In it, wines have been produced for several generations respecting tradition and the environment. That is why, the philosophy of this winery has a unique concept of terroir making wines by the way of production and by the influence of the microclimate that the area has. Ostatu wines are for all that, wines of extensive quality recognized throughout the region.
The winery has a total of 34 hectares of its own vineyard where sustainable viticulture is carried out with the environment, at an average altitude of 570 meters above sea level, on calcareous clayey soils quite rugged. The microclimate that exerts on the vineyards is mainly due to the shelter that the area has thanks to the Sierra de Cantabria and the slopes south of its vineyards.
The wines of Samaniego are really known within the Rioja Alavesa because of the extensive wine tradition that it presents. Bodegas Ostatu since 2000 starts a project to restore a culture that for centuries represented the region for the quality of its wines. At present, Ostatu presents us with sensible and singular wines that represent very well a mixture of modernity and tradition thanks to its philosophy of preservation of the environment and tradition.
