With EL PALACIO, we suggest a return to the origins of Rioja Alavesa wine. The diversity that is found in the vineyard is what we will find in the wine. The sum of the subtleties contained in each and every corner of the vineyard: its three terraces, its different aspects, the varying gradients of the erosion slope… are all part of the complexity of this wine.

The winemaker does not decide the proportion of each variety in the blend. The percentages are determined by the vineyard, by the number of vines planted in 1969: 4,350 Tempranillo vines (75% of the varietal mix), 1,054 Graciano vines (20%) and 269 Viura vines (5%).

In The Vineyard
Bodegas Luis Canas has been a family owned winery for the last two centuries, devoting itself to viticulture and winemaking. 1989 marked a turning point in the winery’s evolution, with JuanLuis Canas taking over the direction of the operations from his father Luis Canas. Under his leadership Luis Canas has become the most awarded winery of Riojia and a reference point for the wines of the region. His fresh ideas and visions turned Luis Canas into a premium wine, known for consistently producing outstanding quality. So much that Ferran Adria, five times winner of ‘World’s Best Restaurant Award’, selected Luis exclusively as the only Rioja wine for his new restaurant project in Barcelona.
