Nestled between the foot of the Sierra that gives the winery its name and the Ebro River sits the town San Vincente de la Sonsierra, a town of great winemaking tradition. Sierra Cantabria is a much lauded, family owned producer who crafts wines of freshness,elegance and Poise. Six generations of obsessive attention to detail and deep respect for the land has earned them a very loyal following.
Vinedos Sierra Cantabria
While the Eguren Family produces traditional Riojan wines under the Sierra Cantabria estate the more contemporary expression of their craft can be found at Vinedos de Sierra Cantabria. Grapes for these modern wines are sourced form some of Sierra Cantabria’s finest vineyards resulting in wines that have a distinctly premium sensibility. The distinctive Eguren approach to attention and detail is very much in evidence here: only the finest, perfectly ripe clusters are hand picked at harvest, with just a small pool of these grapes getting beyond the sorting table to be manually destemmed and trodden by foot in the traditional way.The Eguren family has constructed a new winery at Vinedos de Sierra Cantabria out of stone found on the estate as a fitting tribute to the terrain that bears their vineyards.
