Bodegas Ordóñez started producing wine in Ribera del Duero in 2010 as a goal of showcasing high quality, affordable wine from Pedrosa de Duero’s most traditional vineyards. Pedrosa is an extremely small town of 500 people located in some of the most sought after terroir in Ribera del Duero.
Bodegas Ordóñez produces Tineta and Avante, two wines that are produced from two dry farmed single vineyards of Tinto Fino planted in the traditional vaso system. The vineyards are cared for and harvested by hand, just as every other vineyard in the Grupo Jorge Ordóñez portfolio.
El Carril is the vineyard for Tineta, and was planted between 1975 and 1985 in alluvial soils characterized by a mix of clay, sand, and stony pebbles. Avante is produced from a small parcel called La Nava, planted in 1960 in chalky clay soils with a thin layer of sand on the surface. One small corner of this historic vineyard is an intermixed planting of indigenous Spanish varieties.
Bodegas Ordóñez produces these two spectacular value oriented wines as a way of showcasing quality Ribera del Duero at an affordable price.
