At the foot of the Sierra de Sonsierra, and in the heart of the D.O. Rioja, are born the wines of this winery built by the brothers Marcos and Miguel Eguren with the stone of the land. Under the premise of obtaining great wines from unique vineyards, the Eguren brothers started working hard on the La Llana, Los Terreros, Jararte, El Bosque and La Veguilla farms, from which charismatic wines such as Sierra Cantabria Cuvée, Sierra Cantabria Organza were born, Sierra Cantabria Private Collection, Finca El Bosque and Amancio. These wines are the fruit of the most meticulous selection of the clusters, in many cases despalillados by hand and trodden in the traditional way to obtain the smoothest extraction.
