The carefully selected grapes for this wine come from old vineyards surrounding the village of Viana, which overlooks the Rioja Valley, in what is now known as Rioja Oriental. The climate is continental with a noticeable Mediterranean influence. The 40- year old, low-yielding vines are situated on the slopes which climb up toward the Sierra Mountains at elevations of 600 to 750 meters, where the diversity of the soils contributes to the complexity of the wine. To the north of the village, the soils are very shallow - approximately 40 centimeters deep- on a bedrock of sedimentary rock, with soil comprising sand, clay and limestone. The terrain is quite uneven here, due to several streams that run down from the mountains and create a special microclimate. The streams ensure good drainage which encourages the Gobelet-trained vines to struggle a little to produce concentrated wines.

Bodegas Ondarre was founded in 1985, with the aim of creating wines that showcase the region’s distinct terroirs. Situated in the town of Viana overlooking the Rioja Valley in Rioja Oriental, Bodegas Ondarre is the only winery in the village of Viana. They have formed trusted relationships with the highest quality growers in the area, with whom they have been working since their inception. The Reservas are Bodegas Ondarre’s most acclaimed wines, which win top awards and critical approval every year. They attribute their success to hard work in the vineyards and their continual investment in the winery and barrel stock. They use both French and American oak casks to help them obtain the character in their wines. They also produce a few thousand cases of a single varietal Graciano - a real rarity due to the low-yielding nature of this variety.
