The Cañas family have devoted their live to viticulture and winemaking for over two centuries but their contemporary story begins in 1970 when Luis Cañas and his wife Angeles became the first winemakers in Rioja Alavesa to bottle their young wine rather than sell it in bulk. The mantel was then passed to their only son, Juan Luis, who has continued their pioneering spirit, cementing them an enviable reputation as one of the most go-ahead and progressive wineries in the region however Luis Cañas, now 86, continues to lead the annual harvest, standing at the head of the selection table keenly ensuring only the best parcels of grapes are used in his wines.
Bodegas Luis Cañas Blanco wine has a beautiful golden yellow colour with bright lemon-tinted reflections. On nose it is elegant with flowers, fruits and hazelnuts. The palate is dry with just enough acidity to keep it fresh and lively with a structured and flavoursome finish of ripe fruit. A refreshing drink on its own but is a beautiful accompaniment to most seafood and shellfish, white meat and risotto.... a versatile white Rioja.
