Sierra Cantabria was founded in 1957 by Guillermo Eguren and is part of the Eguren group. The Eguren family was one of the early pioneers to begin production of truly modern Rioja, with radically different wine making than the traditional combined with the "terroir"-thinking.
The bodega Sierra Cantabria is nestled in the heart of San Vicente de la Sonsierra. Mountain range of Sierra Cantabria (1 200 m in height) and the Ebro river (350 m) creates a special micro-climate of the area that provides both the mild winters and summers.
The Tempranillo grapes dominates, together with small amounts of Garnacha and Viura, all grown in vineyards that are around 35 years old. The man behind the wines are Marcos Eguren and he is one of the most prominent winemakers in Spain.
