The American wine magazine ‘Wine Spectator’ once again recognizes the enological prestige of the Eguren family and wines from Viñedos y Bodegas Sierra Cantabria in a review of Spanish wines.
The Eguren family and its wines from Viñedos y Bodegas Sierra Cantabria have once again received international critical acclaim. According to the American magazine ‘Wine Spectator’, the ‘Colección Privada 2012’ from Viñedos Sierra Cantabria scored 93 points, making it one of the most highly regarded Riojas in the Spanish wines review, which was published in its latest edition.
‘Wine Spectator’ picks out the ‘Colección Privada 2012’ which scores 93 points, followed by ‘El Puntido 2011’ with 93 points, and ‘Finca El Bosque’ and ’San Vicente 2011’ with 92 points each.
These wines reflect the authenticity of the terroir which, together with the Rioja region’s microclimate, give the wine its unique character.
The Eguren family has been the owner of Viñedos y Bodegas Sierra Cantabria since 1870, and for generations has dedicated itself to cultivating vineyards and producing and ageing wines in the very special wine-making regions of La Rioja, Toro and Castilla La Mancha.
The family puts its own personal, unmistakable stamp on its wine production, bringing together a daily desire for self-improvement and a passion for doing good work: from the challenging quest to create the best vineyard cultivation conditions, right up to the moment it is made available to the great wine lover.
Keeping alive this tradition passed down from fathers to sons and adapting it to technological advancements, the Egurens enjoy great prestige and are highly regarded thanks to the wines from their six wineries: Sierra Cantabria, Señorío de San Vicente and Viñedos de Páganos, Viñedos Sierra Cantabria in the Q.D.O. Rioja; Bodega Teso La Monja in the D.O. Toro and Dominio de Eguren in Vinos de la Tierra.
