BODEGA OCEÁNICA JOSÉ IGNACIO

OUR STORY

The philosophy of Bodega Oceánica José Ignacio is based on conveying a sense of place; the soul of our land comes across in each glass. The fresh Atlantic sea breeze, morning mists and wind converge into elegant ocean wines, with a very special sensibility that results in soft flavours and intense varietal aromas. Attention to detail within our agriculture, commitment to the environment and teamwork, coupled with the love of art and advanced architecture, provides our purpose.

Eco Certifications

Just as we admire each of our hosts for their singularity, we appreciate that their sustainability journeys are also unique. Because of this, we do not require our hosts to have an eco certification or two under their belt, we simply guide them on improving their sustainable business practices one imperfect – but positive – step at a time. If a host has eco certifications they will be shown below, if not, then know we are working towards this together.

NGOs & Local Impact Projects Supported

Each of our hosts strive to have a positive impact on their local communities. Some of our hosts already have established connections with local partners to enrich the lives and wellbeing of their communities, others are in the process of creating these long term relationships. If a host has local NGO connections they will be shown below, if not, then know we are working towards this together.

What our hosts say..

Transparency is essential if we are all going to grow and improve together and this is why we have dedicated this section to sharing what we love about each place and its hosts. We work with each of our hosts to improve their guest experiences, sustainability practices and local impact, this is where you can learn more about that along with what still needs to be improved, the measures being taken to ensure our hosts continue to move forward and every now and then we’ll come back to update you on their progress.

Find us

A visit to the winery and the Almazara (oil press) alongside a tour of the two architectural icons of Finca José Ignacio: the winery – a construction that accompanies the process of transforming the grape into wine through gravity – and the mill – where our extra virgin oils O’33 are made – followed by a tasting session provides the perfect insight into our quality-over-quantity process.

Once your appetite is thoroughly whetted, you are invited to the terrace to taste a variety of ocean wines and extra virgin oils accompanied by homemade breads and a table of cheeses, Serrano ham, nuts and olives all while enjoying views over the landscape that nourished them.

The architectural design and advanced technology of the olive mill helps to maintain a stable room temperature; our tank room and all the facilities were built using heat-insulating techniques and materials which reduce the estate’s energy use and increase sustainability.

Utilising gravity within the winery’s architectural design enables a more gentle and sustainable processing of the grapes due to the reduced need for pumps while large glass walls allow for natural lighting to penetrate the space, limiting the need for electric lights.

Each olive tree is carefully identified and monitored to ensure complete traceability of our production. This, combined with our commitment to the care of our earth, creates the ideal conditions required to preserve each fruit’s own characteristics, so that it can express a strong and distinctive sense of origin.

WE ARE YOUR HOSTS –
MARCELO AND NATALIA

Our story began in 2012 when we took a leap of faith and purchased 52 hectares of coastal land to transform into a family winery and olive grove. Our vision for Bodega Oceánica José Ignacio was to build a modern but beautiful winery and olive mill to showcase our love for design, art and architecture while also staying true to the quality of wine and oils our enriched land and experienced team can produce.

Our first vineyards were of Pinot Noir, Merlot and Chardonnay to which we added Albariño and Tannat a few years later and we love nothing more than to share our passion and hard work with our guests.
