Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Luis Cañas Crianza is a red wine from D.O. La Rioja produced by Bodegas Luis Cañas in Villabuena, Álava. In 1970, this producer started to bottle and market their wines when many others still sold wines in bulk. In 1994, they opened a new winery with the most modern production systems.

They own 350 hectares, mainly planted on clayey-calcareous soils, distributed in 870 plots located in La Rioja Alavesa, an area with an excellent wine tradition. They use a rational viticulture that does not use any herbicides or synthetic fertilisers.

The climate of Rioja Alavesa is a transition between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean climate. The Sierra de Cantabria mountain range protects form the winds and storm from the north, creating a dry climate with large temperature variations that make it perfect for the cultivation of vines and their optimal ripening.

This wine is made with Tempranillo (95%) and a small amount of Grenache (5%), which gives it a more fruity character. The grapes used to make Luis Cañas Crianza come from vineyards with an average age of 30 years. After the grapes are harvested, they ferment at a controlled temperature of 26ºC for 20 days.

Luis Cañas Crianza ages for 12 months in French oak barrels (70%) and American oak barrels (30%).Then, it rests in the bottle for another 9 months.

A wine that perfectly complements its fruity character with the barrel ageing, leaving a silky tannin in the mouth.

To talk about the Cañas family and wine we have to go back more than two centuries, although the winery, which still has the same family character, was founded in 1928. However, it was in 1970 when Luis Cañas printed his name on the label of his "harvester's wine". From this date onwards, the winery gradually experienced a rise in marketing, and started to develop what is nowadays one of the exemplary wineries of La Rioja Alavesa. Without taking refuge in excessive conservative traditionalism, the personality of Juan Luis, one of the most restless and innovative winemakers in the country, the experience and know-how of the winery team, have made it possible for their wines to be recognised with the most prestigious national and international awards.
Pictures and situation Luis Cañas
Rioja is one of the most important areas of wine production in the world. It has a long history, and exceptional soils and climates. From the Tempranillo and Grenache varieties they make great red wines that are masterfully aged which demonstrates the experience passed from generation to generation.
