A historic brandRead more...Read less...
Bodegas Ollauri-Conde de los Andes is part of Ollauri’s ‘barrio de bodegas’, an area with underground family caves, three traditional buildings and a cluster of spectacular underground cellars. In 2014, this producer acquired the legacy bequeathed by Paternina and the historic Conde de los Andes brand, one of the grandest names in Rioja’s wine culture.
The heart of RiojaRead more...Read less...
We are in the heart of Rioja Alta, a short distance away from Haro and Briones. Wine is deeply rooted in the history of our small village, as evidenced by its noble houses built in the 17th and 18th centuries. Churrumendi Hill, Ollauri’s highest point, offers stunning views of the River Ebro valley, between the Sierra de la Demanda peaks and the limestone walls of Sierra Cantabria and Toloño mountain ranges.
A new eraRead more...Read less...
Today, with the Murúa family at the helm, Bodegas Ollauri-Conde de los Andes brings back an age-old tradition. It was in 1894 when Federico Paternina built the modern cellar where his ancestors had been making and storing wine since the 15th century. After successive changes in ownership that have marked recent decades, Julián and Javier Murúa have begun a new era.

Impressive underground cellarsRead more...Read less...
Excavated over several centuries, the Conde de los Andes caves are Rioja’s most impressive underground cellar system in terms of age, architecture and dimensions, extending over one kilometre in length.
Historical jewelRead more...Read less...
The famous caves, “calados” or “calaos” as locals call them, are a splendid jewel of great heritage value. They are also a remarkable combination of beauty and practical sense —these cellars are still used to store bottle collections from legendary vintages: 1892, 1918, 1948, 1964…
Ancestral wine cultureRead more...Read less...
Corridors full of history, galleries that blend in with the darkness, jaw-dropping vaults and little nooks with special magnetism. Cellars imbued with the ancient culture of wine and the imprint of an ancient skill.
Over five centuriesRead more...Read less...
The calados of Ollauri, whose construction began in the late Middle Ages, boast large masonry foundations and architectural details in the Moorish style. The excavation of the famous square calados was started by Galician quarrymen in the 17th century. Their work stands nowadays as a model of preservation.

Fermented for 3 months with its lees in french oak barrels.
Matured for 6 months in the same barrels.

Our own version of the fresh, fruity and suggestively complex personality of old Tempranillo vines, selected in small plots. A renewed classicism with which we recover the historical brand Conde de los Andes, from the respect of the cultural and wine heritage of the region.
Selection of small plots of tempranillo vines, aged more than 40 years old.
