Winemaker Notes

Classic clarete style Rioja rosé wine. Originally, this was produced by saignée but they changed the method in order to more authentically represent Rioja tradition. Salmon colored, notes of red berries, pomegranate, and strawberry. Refreshing and lively acidity.

Blend:55% Viura, 35% Garnacha, 10% Tempranillo

I loved the 2017 Rosado, a beauty well worth checking out, especially at the price. Terrific notes of strawberries, flowers, some spice, and garrigue all emerge from this classic, very pretty, elegant rosé that has loads of charm.

Sierra Cantabria Winery Video

Bodegas Sierra Cantabria was founded by Guillermo Eguren, a self-made bodeguero, who was, in the family tradition, a viticulturist. His family, native to San Vicente de La Sonsierra, one of the most sought-after terroirs in Rioja, had grown grapes in Rioja Alta and Alavesa since the 1870’s. For decades the family sold their grapes to local producers, but Guillermo recognized the potential that his family's vineyards had to create great wine and founded Bodegas Sierra Cantabria in 1957. Today, the fourth generation of the Eguren family directs all aspects of the winemaking process, with Marcos Eguren as the winemaker and director of operations and his brother Miguel Angel Eguren as the general manager. The family still prides themselves as viticulturists first, and as a result, all the grapes are estate grown. As viticulturists in Rioja Alavesa, they grow a vast majority of Tempranillo, with only a small percentage of Garnacha and Graciano, as they recognize that Garnacha and Graciano do not ripen reliably in northern Rioja.

Bodegas Sierra Cantabria is the family's original winery and comprises a collection of their most classic style Rioja wines. Due to their viticultural background, the family’s wines are composed of mostly Tempranillo, as they recognize that Garnacha and Graciano do not ripen reliably in Northern Rioja.

Although the family's business has evolved over the years through the foundation of other projects, Bodegas Sierra Cantabria comprises their most traditional, classic styled wines. The wines are made from a blend of selected vineyards, as opposed to Viñedos Sierra Cantabria, which is the family's collection of single vineyard wines.

Wines from the Rioja region are the world’s most food-friendly wines and are predominantly produced from the Tempranillo grape. Located in North Central Spain, Rioja spans both sides of the Ebro River and is divided into three growing zones: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa, and Rioja Oriental.

Indigenous to Spain, the Tempranillo grape is Rioja’s hallmark. Elegant and versatile, Rioja Tempranillo can be found in every expression of Rioja wines– from young and fresh to rich and complex. Tempranillo provides the backbone of Rioja wines, adding complex notes of red and black fruit, leather, toast, and tobacco. This versatility makes Tempranillo a perfect pairing for any cuisine.

Well-balanced with moderate alcohol, the wines of Rioja can stand up to flavorful dishes from all international dishes. Tempranillo Reservas and Gran Reservas bring out the best in savory meals like grilled steaks or lamb chops while lightly chilled young reds like Crianzas or Genericos pair well with simple pastas with light sauces. Rose wines are the perfect choice for any picnic, pairing well with salads and charcuterie. Rioja Whites (Viura grape) provide perfect acidity for any seafood dish.

As Spain's most celebrated wine region, Rioja’s quality standards are high. Every bottle of Rioja wine has a color-coded “trust seal” on the back of each bottle. This identifies authenticity and origin as well as the aging classification (Gran Reserva, Reserva, Crianza, Generico). Providing age on demand, Rioja is the only wine region in the world that releases wines when they are ready to drink, meaning wines are aged in barrel and bottled up to the time they are released.

Rioja is ready when you are for any occasion.

Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color depends on grape variety and winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta.
