Only the best grapes can produce the best wines
Based on the firm belief that the best wines can only be made from the best grapes at Bodegas Luis Cañas can speak of a true obsession with the vineyard.
In the heart of the Rioja Alavesa
Luis Cañas is located in the heart of the Rioja Alavesa, undoubtedly one of the best wine regions in the world. The vineyards, mostly small in size and of advanced age, are characterised by being situated on barely fertile chalky clay soil, mostly on slopes and terraces, with an ideal microclimate and in an area with a strong winemaking tradition which makes it unique.
This results in low yields, bunches and grapes which are small in size but of excellent quality.
870 plots are required to make up the approximately 350 hectares of vineyards owned or controlled by the winery, which makes the work involved a real challenge. In order to carry it out we have a specific field department composed by an agricultural engineer, two agriculture technical engineers, and seven workers, all true artisans of the vine.
Given the characteristics of the vineyard all the work is done by hand.
