Jorge Ordonez Sparling Muscat Botani

The winery Jorge Ordonez & Co. is the result of collaboration between Jorge Ordonez, who was born and raised in Malaga, and Alois Kracher, the late world famous Austrian winemaker who was known for his dessert wines. It was Jorge’s dream to revitalize the dormant wine industry in his hometown and restore its former glory. Alois Kracher, who was the undisputed number one in Austrian sweet wines, was succeeded by his son Gerhard Kracher in 2008. At the helm of this most original project are Jorge Ordonez, one of the most prominent Spanish wine importers in the US, and his sister Victoria Ordonez, who is the general manager of the winery. With the harvest of 2004 came the birth of the first bottles from the winery, nestled in the heart of the Axarquia region of Malaga. This mountainous region of steep slopes and slate soil near the Mediterranean is believed to be one of the oldest viticultural areas in Europe. [+]
