Luis Canas Seleccion de la Familia Rioja Reserva

Luis Canas Seleccion de la Familia Rioja Reserva is a dark garnet red colour with a pronounced bouquet of ripe strawberries and plums.

Luis Canas Seleccion de la Familia Rioja Reserva is a deep, rich and savoury on the palate showing well integrated tannins, elegant, silky fruit and subtle oak. http://www.luiscanas.com/bodega.php?sec=3&sub=bodega

Bodegas Luis Canas has been at the heart of Rioja since 1928 though the contemporary story begins in 1970 when Luis Canas became the first Rioja Alavesa winemaker to bottle his young wine rather than sell it in bulk.

Situated in Villabuena, Luis Canas utilise their knowledge of the local climate, terroir, cultivation methods and a real sense of pride and dedication to create these unique wines – every harvest Luis Canas, now 86, stands at the head of the selection table keenly ensuring only the best parcels of grapes are used.

The end result is wine consistently packed with fruit and wrapped in a silky, oak laced layer of flavour that seems unique to Rioja – truly world class.

In 1928 the founder, Luis Cañas was born. A perfectionist, exceptionally hardworking and whose motivation was always the pride of achieving the best quality in his vineyards and consequently in his bulk wines which convinced the palates of the great wine merchants who at the time were based in the Bilbao Alhóndiga market

It was in 1970 that Luis Cañas went on the market selling bottled young wines which had previously only been sold in bulk. That same year, not far from the Cueva de los Curas, we created the winery which bears our name and poured into it all our passion for the grape, the true origin of wines of the finest quality from the Rioja Alavesa.

1989 marks a milestone in the history of our cellar, with Juan Luis Cañas, son of Luis Cañas, taking over the reins. Just 33 years old, he brought a breath of fresh air to the winery while preserving the work ethic and family tradition thanks to his character as a perfectionist and non-conformist.

This meant it was not enough for him just to make good young wines, but rather, now to start making new wines with an increasing emphasis on aged wines.

In 1994 we inaugurated a new, modern cellar equipped with the best winemaking facilities.

Since then, in Bodegas Luís Cañas we have not ceased in our efforts, with constant improvements and extensions to our plant in order to continue improving the quality of our wines.
The character of Juan Luis, one of the most restless and innovative winemakers in the country, combined with the know-how and experience of the team at the winery, have made it possible for our wines to become recognised all over the world with the most prestigious awards.
