Dear Nancy. Many thanks for your carefuly made review. For us was so nice to have your group (all women and a single man) during this past harvest time. You were so nice and understanding with the whole crazy work in the winery. As I told you here, you're free to write me back asking for the beans' receipe, I will gladly provide you.Take care, Ainhoa.
Thanks for taking time to make this review Jeff! It was a pleasure to have you here. If you come back to Rioja Alavesa again, don't hesitate in visiting us. We'll show you the rest of the winery. Regards, Ainhoa
Dear Alyssa, We are very glad of having such nice visitors as you are. You come in the first days of harvest and you could enjoy the grape tasting... you were lucky! that is only possible for a few weeks while the grapes are in the vineyards. Thank you very much for sharing your #OststuExperience in Tripadvisor. If you ever come back here, you'll be more than welcome. Regards, Ainhoa
I'm extremely grateful to you for your kind words. It's very nice to notice that people experience with you the love for the area, the vineyards, the wine... especially with people involved in wine business.
What a nice words! I have checked your tweets about us and I only want to say thanks. ThankU very much for try to export the Rioja Alavesa's wine culture!
What a difference 3 years makes! We have been visiting Bodegas Ostatu since the 90's and were surprised by the changes we found this year. A new shop and tasting room has replaced the original entrance hall and the wood panelled dining/tasting room replaced with a modern cafe. The shop is light and well laid out showing off the fabulous wines this bodega offers to the best advantage. Well worth a visit.
We visited this family owned winery in July 2013. We felt very welcome to visit the winery from the first contact that we made by email. All the arrangements happended very fast and smoothly, and winery's Tourism Responsible, Ainhoa Navaridas, speaks excellent english. After visiting few big wineries in the rioja area, we must say that we just fell in love with Bodegas Ostatu. We chose the Winery & Vineyard Tour that included over one hour tour with an all-terrain vehicle. The tour was organized by one of the owners who explained extremely well the history and charasterics of Rioja area and wine making philosophy of Bodegas Ostatu.The tour ended in Bodegas Ostatu's recently renovated entrance hall where we could taste various of Bodegas Ostatu's wines. All their wines are expetionally good and our taste bud's loved especially Lore de Ostatu, Gloria de Ostatu and Ostatu Reserva. We bought all of these into our home cellar.We can warmly recommend Bodegas Ostatu and if you are passing Samaniego, do not miss the possibility to drop in this great winery!
Very straightforward place. Not pretentious. Don't need an appointment and you get great attention and good wine.
Ostatu is a very nice winery. You don´t need to make an appointment in advance. We taste great wine and the staff was very friendly helpful. We will come back!
Thanks for your kind words ArchiHi. It's nice to see that people enjoyed their time here, at our winery.
Thanks Jennifer! It was great to have you two here!
Great recomendation! Our Selección de Ostatu 2010 is waitting for been released this September... Thanks for taking your time in writing about us.
2010 moet je proeven! We werden ontvangen door een uiterst vriendelijke dame die vloeiend Engels sprak.
Gracias por tus palabras Mercedes! Lo del vino ecológico es un proyecto pendiente, aunque sí que es cierto que tenemos un compromiso de emisión neutral de huella de carbono para todos ellos. Esperamos veros de nuevo!
Muchas gracias por tu opinión Cristina. Encantada de que disfrutaséis de la comida, del ambiente y de los vinos, trabajamos para ello. Un Día en Ostatu es una experiencia para compartir y me alegra haberlo hecho con un grupo tan encantador y variopinto como vosotros. Espero volver a veros pronto por la bodega. Un abrazo
