The Oddbins Take

If you ran around the circle of latitude 42 degrees north of the equator you’d visit some pretty unusual places: Corsica, Albania, Macedonia, Georgia, most of the “stans”, Inner Mongolia, North Korea, the Japanese island of Hokkaido, the Oregon/California and New York/Pennsylvania borders, and loads more. But to be honest we wouldn’t get much further than Torre de Oña’s winery in la Rioja Alta.

La Rioja Alta bought the Torre de Oña vineyards and winery in 1994. Rather than produce a traditional Rioja by blending grapes from across the region, Torre de Oña would showcase the character of the Rioja Alavesa district with its single-estate wine from vine planted at 630 meters above sea level on the cooler slopes of the Sierra de Cantabria.
