The Pérez Cuevas family has been committed to the land for more than 80 years. Ever since, it was first made in their ancient winery located in Quel, their village of origin, and more specifically in the old neighborhood where local wineries had been making wine traditionally for over 300 years.

As time passed, they felt the need to share and spread their respect and awe for these wines with the rest of the world. Under this premise, they established Ontañon – El Templo del Vino in Logroño. This is as much a museum as a winery, where our wines are aged under the vigilant watch of ancient gods and legendary heroes, personified in sculpture, stained glass and paintings.

Wine has been present in our culture for ages, and has been closely aligned with the history of mankind. Our « Culto al Vino » pays homage to this fact.

The pale, young and lively Akemi was produced with Viura grapes from the village of Quel, close to Alfaro, where the winery is located. It's very perfumed and fruit-driven despite its five months in oak barrels. It was selected by sushi master Félix Jiménez from the Kiro Sushi restaurant in Logroño and bottled with a Japanese label (it looks like a bottle of sake), with a name that means brightness and beauty. He says it's “a white from Rioja with a Japanese spirit.” The wine has a very intense nose that's perfumed and a little tropical, and the palate is soft, with moderate acidity, denoting a warm year.

12.5% ABV
