A very persistent and meaty wine. This category of Rioja wines does not focus on Crianza, Reserva, Gran Reserva, but rather on parcel wines with a focus on the individual sites and their typicality.
Aging: 18 months in French and American oak barrels, then another 6 months in foudres.
Dominio de Queirón is the project of the Pérez Cuevas family (Ontanon), which has been dedicated to the world of wine for four generations. The winery is located in the heart of the Barrio de Bodegas de Quel, a typical 18th century enclave that shows the historical importance of this town in La Rioja for wine production. Dominio de Queirón is the fulfilment of the dream of Gabriel Pérez, a winemaker who has been working on this project for more than a decade. Gabriel has acquired historic vineyards in the Quel area, at the foot of the Sierra de Yerga, such as the centennial Garnachas, from Finca El Arca to the high tempranillos of Finca La Pasada, which at up to 800 metres above sea level is one of the highest vineyards in the entire Rioja DOCa.
