The purity of terroir

Sierra Cantabria, Viñedos Sierra Cantabria, Señorío de San Vicente and Viñedos de Páganos are the family projects in DOCa. Rioja and Teso La Monja in DO Toro. Marcos and Miguel Eguren have embraced the same principles of their father, Guillermo Eguren, and endorse with passion the search for the identity of the fruit in order to achieve long-lasting wines that ensamble fruit, power and structure with elegance, freshness and subtlety. The family’s philosophy is to create wines which evoke the vineyards where they are born, wines of great versatility and personality, and wines which portray the nuances of outstanding terroirs.
