As part of a three-part presentation, this week Peter will explain to you the nuances of the Sierra Cantabria Rioja, a 100% tempranillo from Rioja, Spain.

This wines comes from the vineyards owned by the Eguren family. According to the official bodega Web site, since 1870 generation after generation of this family have been dedicated to grape growing and to the elaboration and ageing of great wines in one of the most prestigious estates in Rioja.

Situated on the border with France, this area is situated in a unique location, between the River Ebro and the Sierra Cantabria mountain range. This mountain range has given the name to the winery and protects the vineyard from the cold winds from the north, creating a specific microclimate for the cultivation of the vines and therefore providing a differentiated personality to the wines.

Peter said that he had personally visited these vineyards and will share his amazing experiences with Spirit Unlimited Middletown customers in the future.
