LA BODEGA

UNA MARCA HISTÓRICA

En el barrio de bodegas de Ollauri, tres antiguos edificios y una espectacular trama de calados subterráneos alojan Bodegas Ollauri-Conde de los Andes. Desde 2014, esta bodega asume el legado de la antigua casa Paternina y de la marca histórica Conde de los Andes, uno de los grandes nombres de la elaboración y la cultura del vino de Rioja.

LA BODEGA

EL CORAZÓN DE RIOJA

Estamos en el corazón de la Rioja Alta, a poca distancia de Haro y Briones, en un municipio pequeño y de larga historia vitivinícola, como atestiguan sus casas solariegas de los siglos VXII y XVIII. Desde el cerro Churrumendi, punto más alto de Ollauri, se domina todo el ancho valle del Ebro, entre las alturas de la Sierra de la Demanda y la pared de roca caliza de las sierras de Toloño y Cantabria.

LA BODEGA

UNA NUEVA ETAPA

Hoy, de la mano de la familia Murúa, Bodegas Ollauri-Conde de los Andes retoma una tradición que se remonta varios siglos atrás. Fue en 1894 cuando Federico Paternina creó la moderna bodega donde sus antepasados hacían y guardaban vino desde el siglo XV. Tras los sucesivos cambios de propiedad que marcan las últimas décadas, Julián y Javier Murúa inician una nueva etapa.

LA BODEGA

AÑADAS HISTÓRICAS, VIÑAS VIEJAS, VINOS ACTUALES

Bodegas Ollauri-Conde de los Andes es la suma del respeto por el patrimonio histórico, el compromiso con la custodia de cientos de miles de botellas de añadas antiguas y la renovación que simboliza la actual gama de vinos. Procedentes de pequeñas parcelas de viñedo viejo plantadas en parajes altos, representan una nueva interpretación del vino de la Rioja Alta bajo la marca recuperada Conde de los Andes.

THE "CALADOS"

IMPRESSIVE UNDERGROUND CELLARS

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.

THE "CALADOS"

HISTORICAL JEWEL

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…

THE "CALADOS"

ANCESTRAL WINE CULTURE

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.

THE "CALADOS"

OVER FIVE CENTURIES

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.

THE "CALADOS"

AN EXCITING VISIT

Today the Conde de los Andes calados display once again their exciting and hidden charm. An exclusive tour programme provides the opportunity to visit this singular place and enjoy a special experience encompassing culture, history and wine.

CONDE DE LOS ANDES BLANCO

An accurate grape selection in the vineyard and a delicate maturation in French oak barrels allows us to bring the elegance of the white Viura variety at its best. The result is a wine of great balance, presence and distinction, noted for its deep gastronomic dimension.

SELECTED VIURA VINEYARD WITH AN AVERAGE AGE OF 30 YEARS OLD.

FERMENTED FOR 3 MONTHS WITH ITS LEES IN FRENCH OAK BARRELS.

MATURED FOR 6 MONTHS IN THE SAME BARRELS.

CONDE DE LOS ANDES TINTO

Sello

CONDE DE LOS ANDES TINTO

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.

MATURED IN FRENCH OAK BARRELS AND AFTERWARDS IN THE BOTTLE.

IN ADDITION TO THE CURRENT VINTAGE, THE WINERY CAN OFFER OLD VINTAGES ON DEMAND.

CONDE DE LOS ANDES BLANCO SEMIDULCE

Semisweet wines are one of the most recognized jewels of the winery. In the ancient caves of Conde de los Andes, we keep historical vintages, of which now sell the 2003, of ideal climatic conditions for a unique balance of sweetness and freshness. A charming subtlety.
