Sustainability is central to the Eguren family. The vineyards have been cultivated according to organic viticultural principles for over thirty years. Chemical pesticides have therefore not been used for a long time. The vineyards of Sierra Cantabria are protected from the cold northern winds by the Sierra Cantabria mountain range of the same name. The vineyard locations differ from each other in altitude, soil composition, location and age of the vines. They all benefit from the confluence of Atlantic and Mediterranean climate influences. Each vineyard therefore has its own character and it is these different character (terroir) properties that the Eguren family wants to reflect in the wines.

The Organza of Sierra Cantabria is a blend of the Viura, Malvasia & Garnacha Blanca grapes and comes from the old vineyard San Vicente de la Sonsierra.
After manual picking, the grapes are cold soaked for 12 hours to extract extra flavor and aroma from the grapes. Fermentation takes place in new French oak barrels. Followed by barrel aging for 9 months and battonage (stirring the dead yeast cells for extra body and volume) twice a week for the first 6 months.

This is a beautiful refined white Rioja with beautifully refined oak and a nice butterscotch. In the nose white fruits and in the mouth a good acidity and again beautiful fruit tones with refined oak and vanilla. This is a very nice elegant white wine of which only between 6 and 9 thousand bottles are made every year. In the tab: Attachment you will find the official fact sheet of this beautiful white Rioja.

Sierra Cantabria embodies the essence of the Eguren family . More than 10 years ago, Marcos and Miguel Eguren created a white wine called "Organza," referring to the light fabric that adorns wedding dresses, signifying its softness and delicacy. There is a similar reference for "Sierra Cantabria Otoman" which refers to another type of silk, made from fabrics produced in Turkey. This substance gives the same vitality and freshness, while preserving the unique soft characteristics of the Sonsierra environment, where the grapes of this wine come from.

Vineyard for 2020 Sierra Cantabria Organza Blanco

The Spanish winery Sierra Cantabria was founded in 1957 by Guillermo Eguren and is one of Hermanos Eguren's beautiful wineries. Sierra Cantabria is located in the Rioja in a unique location between the River Ebro and the Sierra Cantabria mountain range. The Sierra Cantabria Mountains (1200m.) And the River Ebro (350m.) Provide a special microclimate with Mediterranean and continental features - mild winters and mild summers, unique to wine growing.
On the other hand, the thermal summer jump (intense heat during the day with fresh night temperatures) increases the polyphenol content, which makes for excellent quality wines with a distinctive character.

The vineyards of Bodega Sierra Cantabria are mainly located in the towns of San Vicente de la Sonsierra, Labastida and Laguardia, an area very well known for wine growing.
The Tempranillo variety predominates, along with small amounts of Garnacha, Viura and 'Hairy Tempranillo', all of which are grown in vineyards about 35 years old, although there are also plots up to 70 years old.The harvest is carried out by hand every year, paying special attention to the rigorous selection of the grapes that are the soul of the wine, in optimal condition and in perfect ripening conditions. The careful harvest is followed by a thorough separation of the bunches, which is done on a selection table at the entrance of the winery. Winemaking is aimed at minimal intervention in the winery to fully respect the character of the terroir
