Rioja Tasting-Bodegas Luis Canas & Amaren 21st March 2024
Rioja Tasting - Bodegas Luis Cañas & Amaren
Thursday 21st March 7.30 pm
Krantz Kitchen Showroom - Bailgate, Lincoln
Presented by Bryn Stephens (the singing wine merchant) From Alliance Wine the UK agent
We will be tasting a range of 8 wines from these multi award wining producers. One family with two very different style Bodegas.
In 1970 Luis Cañas changed two hundred years of tradition and became the first winemaker in Rioja Alavesa to bottle his young wine rather than sell it as bulk. This bold move, and his continued pioneering spirit, has cemented the winery's enviable reputation as one of the most progressive in the region. Sheltered below the watchful Sierra Cantabria, the vineyards are all old, small plots on chalky-clay soils with a dedicated team of vineyard workers carrying out organic practices. Juan Luis Cañas is now the powerhouse behind this highly accomplished winery, named as grower of the year 2023 by Tim Atkin.
Jon Cañas (Luis Cañas’ grandson) is the imaginative winemaker behind Bodegas Amaren. Jon has been granted free rein to explore the character of Alavesa’s vineyards, giving us a raw, modern interpretation of Rioja Alavesa. Bodegas Amaren is comprised of some of best and highest altitude vineyards around the villages of Samaniego and Leza, where the soil is poor and gnarly vines, ageing up to and over 100 years old, produces small bunches, perfect for making highly concentrated Rioja wines.
These Wines are truly outstanding, and with Bryn presenting it will be a very entertaining night.
