More information :

Ontañón Tempranillo Blanco is made from the rare White Tempranillo grape.

In 1988 a wine grower in the Rioja Baja region discovered in the midst of his Tempranillo red grapes one of his vines had produced yellow green clusters of grapes. After several years of investigation, the Consejo Regulador of Rioja accepted that this was a natural mutation of the usually red grape.

Currently Tempranillo Blanco is found only in the Rioja wine region of Spain.

In 2007, the Spanish Institute for Foreign Trade working with the Consejo Regulador of the Rioja region came to an agreement that would allow the planting and use of Tempranillo Blanco in white Rioja wines produced under the DOC labels.

Only a handful of wine growers in Rioja have Tempranillo Blanco vines.

Bodegas Ontañón saw the potential of this grape and planted in 2010. 2016 was the first vintage of Tempranillo Blanco that they released.

Raquel, Rubén and María Pérez Cuevas are part of the fifth generation of the Pérez Cuevas family to carry on the tradition of grape growing in the southern part of Rioja. Their father, Gabriel, inherited a portion of his family's vineyard in the early 1980s, Gabriel began making wine from these vineyards rather than selling the fruit as his ancestors had. He was determined to produce wines that embodied the region of Quel, where his family had deep roots and where he believed the highest quality wines from Rioja were produced. The fruit from this part of Rioja was known to be among the best of the Rioja region.
