Luis Cañas winery, located in the Rioja Alavesa has more than two centuries devoted to viticulture. It is a tradition and a way of life that is reflected in their wines. In the more recent years of this long journey they have managed to become one of the best wineries in the area of the DOC Rioja, thereby collecting numerous awards and accolades.
The new phase started 30 years ago when Luis Cañas decided to convince his parents to move from a production based on young wines and improve the quality of the wines.
They now enjoy exceptional quality, combining the tradition of knowledge of the trade with modernity and the pursuit of excellence in a great Rioja. They have 350 hectares of vineyards planted with Garnacha, Tempranillo, Graciano, Mazuelo, Viura and Malvasia vines aged between 30 and 60 years and divided into 850 plots worked individually and in which all the work is done by hand.
They are true craftsmen of wine. The vineyards are characterized by being on calcareous clay soils of low fertility mostly on hillsides or terraces and situated at an altitude of between 450 and 600 meters above sea level.
