Bodegas Luis Cañas is located in the heart of the highly acclaimed wine region known as the Rioja Alavesa. It is a family owned winery devoted to wine-making and viticulture for over two centuries, although it was only in 1970 with the commercialisation of its first bottled wines that the winery took off. Throughout the 1990s a bigger emphasis was given to the production of good quality wines, consequently experiencing a rise in sales and becoming what it is today: one of the leading wineries in the Rioja Alavesa.
The winery owns 90 ha of vines and works another 200 ha under contract; all of them spread out over 870 mostly small sized parcels of advanced age and planted on poor chalky clay soil, and mostly on slopes and terraces. The result is low yields of excellent quality.
