Viñedos Sierra Cantabria
Viñedos Sierra Cantabria is the end result of the Eguren family´s desire to improve. Their objective is to encapsulate the virtues of a collection of vineyards into unique wines.
The vineyards which have been passed down through the family are exceptional and unite the best characteristics of location, orientation and soil. The vineyards are mainly planted with Tempranillo and are located in the “Sonsierra” area and in a small part Rioja Alavesa. The "Sonsierra" is an area within Rioja Alta which is located between the Ebro River and the Cantabrian Mountains which protects the land from the North wind and has good sun exposure.
Viñedos Sierra Cantabria is located in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, Rioja Alta. Like a tribute to the earth, the Bodega was constructed by the Eguren family with stone that was extracted from the piece of land it was built upon.
Viñedos Sierra Cantabria´s wines are the product of careful wine making with a meticulous selection of the bunches of grapes. In many cases the de-stemming is carried out by hand and the grapes are trodden in the traditional way in order to obtain the highest quality.
