Now that fall is back we will go on discovering the most emblematic restaurants of the area so that you can enjoy a real Ostatu Experience with our wines and the best gastronomy.
We have talked about other thing in the summer season but we want to bring back this suggestions of us, so this time we are going to move to the southern part of La Rioja, specifically to the village of Santo Domingo de La Calzada, to find the restaurant of La Cancela.
La Cancela is a small and charming restaurant which has no web page and which you will not find in the social media as it is run by a traditional family and the restaurant itself is by far well-known among locals because of the quality of its traditional cuisine, which you can check in Tripadvisor via all people that has been delighted with a meal by them.
The type of cuisine that we are going to find in La Cancela restaurant is traditional cooking from La Rioja as for example a menú with roasted fresh vegetables, chop lambs or sirloin steak and as a dessert a portion of cheese with quince to finish your wine. Of course, you can find other options and really delicious dishes, as the menú of La Cancela always surprises you with meats, sweet desserts and intense flavours.
However, the menu that we suggested is perfect for pairing it with the Ostatu Crianza 2014 because it is a fresh, fruity and nice wine that accompanies perfect these meats, vegetables and everyday flavours of products of quality,
The new vintage of Ostatu Crianza 2014 (Certified by the control board as good) has been released this month of October by its producer, Bodegas Ostatu in Samaniego. What will we find in the new vintage 2014? It is a fresh new wine elaborated with the four red varieties of the area: Tempranillo, Graciano, Garnacha y Mazuelo. It is a very balsamic wine that reminds you to sweet fruits as raspberry and cherries and also to some spices as black pepper as we have already tasted in the winery. A perfect wine to drink everyday during the coming year.
Of course, as pairing so perfectly with the traditional cuisine flavours and dishes we will be able to find Ostatu Crianza as a basic wine in La Cancela too, because as wine and food lovers they know the quality of the products they are serving must go together.
So if you come to visit Rioja Alavesa don`t forget to swing by La Cancela to enjoy a traditional meal or swing by Bodegas Ostatu where you will be able to discover all of our wines in our Wine Bar.
