Torre de Oña is a winery in Rioja Alavesa that belongs to the La Rioja Alta group. More modern Rioja wines are produced here than in the traditional mother house; the emphasis here is more on the fruit than on aging aromas.

In 2016, the fourth vintage of the Martelo Reserva was created after 2012, 2014 and 2015. The best Tempranillo (95%) and Mazuelo grapes ( 5%) selected for this top wine. After 24 months of storage in American and French barriques, it was bottled. The result is a highly concentrated and intense red wine that is one of the absolute best in Rioja Alavesa. The Spanish wine guide Guia Proensa awarded 97/100 points, while Parker's Wine Advocate gave it 95/100. Very high praise indeed.
