Amaren, "wine mother" was born with the harvest of 1.995 as a tribute to the mother of the winemaker Juan Luis Cañas. AMAREN, which in Basque means "mother", was the first wine conceived, produced and marketed to be among the most outstanding wines. The mother of Juan Luis, Angeles, was until her death a tireless worker.
She devoted her life to farm work and the winery with her husband Luis Cañas, founder of the Rioja wineries Juan Cañas, and its strong and friendly character can be found in each of the wines from Luis Cañas.
In 2009, Juan Luis Cañas saw his dream come true, and not only devoted a wine but a whole cellar to his mother. Bodegas Amaren was born.
That same year two new wines were born, both maintaining the family links, philosophy and love for the vineyard: the signature wines Amaren Angeles and a White made from old vines and Barrel Fermented.
Amaren is the pursuit of perfection in all fields: the vineyard, grape selection, processing and ageing to produce wines that excite discerning palates.
