Amaren Winery: winemakig with great passion

Surrounded by charming rows of vines and spectacular countryside, the Amaren Winery locates in the Rioja Alavesa region of Spain. The vineyard-zone is stretched over an area of 65 hectares, where ancient vine plants of 35 to 110 years old are cultivated.

Rioja Alavesa enjoys a perfect microclimate where grapes are grown with traditional viticulture practices, enhanced by hard work and dedication

In the loving memory of the mother

The word Amaren, in Basque, means “of the mother.” In the loving memory of his mother, Juan Luis established Bodegas Amaren. Today, he owns two wineries, namely Luis Cañas and Amaren. In 1995, Juan was eager to start a new line of production, using only one kind of grape. He used Tempranillo grapes to produce Amaren Reserva Tempranillo 1995, a tribute to his mother, Ángeles. Later in 2016, Juan constructed another winery under the name of his father, Bodegas Luis Cañas.

Focus on monovarietal wines

On the top of Villabuena, a 110 years old vineyard, El Regollar, is located. Here, different types of grapes are grown, including Tempranillo, Graciano, Malvasía, and Grenache. During the harvesting season, these vines are manually picked and sometimes with animal traction. The winery focuses on the production of monovarietal wines, which include top-class red and white wines, all made under the DOCa Rioja status.

The wine cellar undergoes continuous advancements while maintaining the old traditions. There exists a cold room where bunches are brought for fermentation. After that, the wines are stored in concrete tanks of capacity 15000 L each and wooden barrels for active ageing and refining of grains.
