A mineral-laced beauty from the heart of the Iberian Peninsula, known for its dry, aromatic whites. All stainless steel fermentation preserves a refreshing hint of bitterness underlying layers of lush pear & citrus fruit.

Bodegas Olarra Anares is located on the outskirts of Logroño, right in the heart of the Rioja DOC, within the Alta sub-district. Since it was founded in 1973, Olarra has been characterised by the beauty and complexity of its facilities, known as the Cathedral of Rioja, with its unique 'Y' shaped ground plan, as well as its 111 hexagonal "egg box" domes. This bodega has been able to combine modern winemaking techniques with the traditional vinification and ageing processes of Rioja, creating wines according to strict quality standards.

The less famous neighbor of Ribera del Duero, this tiny but important wine region is considered one of the best for producing world class white wines. Like Ribera del Duero, the region suffers from dramatic climate changes, extremely cold winters followed by scorching hot summers. In the 1970, the vineyards began to widely plant the native grape Verdejo, instead of the heat tolerant Palomino which is found in sherry but could also produce a high alcohol and dull table wine. These days, wines from Rueda are fresh and vibrant and represent a great everyday value.
