Viñedos y Bodegas Sierra Cantabria

Rioja Alavesa

Founded in 1957 by Guillermo Eguren, Sierra Cantabria is in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, a town of great winemaking tradition (San Vicente is the patron saint of grape growers).  The vineyards are situated in La Rioja Alavesa, between the 1,200-metre Sierra Cantabria mountain range to the north and the River Ebro to the south.  This creates a special local climate, with Atlantic wind and rain tempered by milder, Mediterranean influences.  Although the grape Tempranillo takes its name from ‘temprano’ (early), high up in Rioja Alavesa it ripens late.  Sierra Cantabria’s highest vineyards are at about 600m elevation, and in 2009 the grape harvest was completed in the snow!

Sierra Cantabria's wines are made in some jaw-dropping underground cellars, which total almost three kilometres of tunnels across three different locations.  In the middle of San Vicente de la Sonsierra is the family’s oldest winery – Señorio de San Vicente – which dates back to the 1870s.  Since 1991, it has been dedicated exclusively to the production of just one wine, coming from one vineyard, ‘La Canoca’, in the foothills of the Sierra Cantabria mountains.  The Egurens were keen to nurture the almost extinct Tempranillo Peludo (‘Hairy Tempranillo), which ripens exceptionally late, yields low and produces fabulously characterful and concentrated wine.
