Bodegas Ontanon- Rioja Oriental

In October 2015, Félix Jiménez opened his own Japanese Restaurant, KIRO Sushi in Logroño (La Rioja, Spain). Here, he creates traditional Japanese dishes incorporating Riojan ingredients. Everything is cooked in front of his guests using the freshest and finest ingredients and there are no waiters to serve diners. With such a colourful cooking history, it is no surprise that Jiménez teamed up with the family-owned vineyard Ontañon, located in the high mountain slopes of the Sierra de Yerga, just south of the River Ebro in Rioja baja, to create his wine range. Félix Jiménez was born in 1977 in La Rioja, Spain and is well known for his fusion cuisine blending traditional Japanese dishes with Riojan ingredients. His signature dish is Ramen. After graduating at The Advanced Catering College in La Rioja, Jiménez began working in Versailles (France) in the well-known Le Moliere restaurant. Jiménez worked in some high end restaurants on his return to Spain: Hotel Hacienda Benazuna (Bulli Hotel) in Sevilla. Grupo Maher. The one-star Michelin Cintruenigo restaurant in Navarra. La Comedia in Marbella Head chef at Tahini Japanese Restaurant in Mallorca. Tahini is one of the most famous Japanese restaurants in Europe. Owner of Japanese Restaurant, KIRO Sushi in Logroño (La Rioja, Spain).
