Characteristics of Sierra Cantabria Garnacha
Sierra Cantabria Garnacha is a red wine made by Bodega Sierra Cantabria in the D.O. Rioja with Grenache grapes from the winery's vineyards planted in 1927 in San Vicente de la Sonsierra.
The harvest is carried out by hand, and the bunches go through a double selection. First in the vineyard and then upon arrival in the winery.
The grapes are destemmed and then macerate with their skins on for 21 days, with daily pump-overs, the frequency of which is reduced in the final days.
The fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 23ºC with native yeasts from the winery's vineyards.
It ages for 12 and a half months in French oak barrels, 15% new and 85% one year old.

La 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.
Bodega Sierra Cantabria is located in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, a town with long winemaking history in the heart of La Rioja. The winery is a member of the Eguren family, a family of winemakers who have been in La Rioja for five generations and also have wineries in other DOs, such as the winery Teso la Monja in the DO Toro.
