Ukan is a wood-aged red wine made with the Tempranillo variety by Ukan in the D.O.Ca. Rioja, in La Rioja (Spain).

Ukan Winery is a new project run by the younger generation of the Eguren family. Its creators, Koldo and his cousin Eduardo, work to convey the Rioja Alavesa landscape in each of their wines. To do this, they use the knowledge they acquired from their parents and grandparents and add their modern vision. This is a small winery that produces limited quantities using totally artisan methods. Great care is taken in everything down to the smallest detail.

Ukan comes from a selection of old vineyards that represent the diversity in Rioja Alavesa. The vines are respectfully cultivated to try and preserve the natural balance of the terroir, and the harvest is carried out manually in small boxes at the optimum point of ripeness.

In the winery, the Ukan grapes ferment with native yeasts in conical wooden vats with 30% of the bunches left whole. The wine then ages for 17 months in 225-litre French oak barrels.

Ukan is the first wine made by this new project run by the 5th generation of the Eguren family and it has all the ingredients of a great Rioja wine. The Rioja Alavesa landscape in a bottle.

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.
