Spanische Weine von Weingut Luis Cañas
Wines from the Luis Cañas winery
For more than a century, our family was dedicated to the production and sale of traditional young wines made by the method of carbonic maceration (whole clusters). These were made in the Cueva de los Curas, an old winery dug in the ground and still today is part of the landscape of the area.
Formerly, the wines were transported by Carlos Cañas, father of Luis Cañas (now 90 years old), in carts pulled by mules crossing the Sierra Cantabria and the Montes de Vitoria to areas bordering Bilbao and San Sebastián, more than 100 kilometers from Villabuena
In 1928 the founder, Luis Cañas, was born. Man of perfectionist character, hardworking as few and whose motivation was always the pride of getting the best quality in their vineyards and as a consequence in their bulk wines, conquering the palate of the great wine merchants, who at that time were located in the Bilbao Alhondiga.
