Sustainability is central to the Eguren family. The vineyards have been cultivated according to organic wine-growing principles for more than thirty years. Chemical pesticides have therefore not been used for a long time. The Sierra Cantabria vineyards are protected from the cold northern winds by the Sierra Cantabria mountains of the same name. The vineyard locations differ in height, soil composition, location and age of the vines. They all benefit from the confluence of Atlantic and Mediterranean climate influences. Each vineyard therefore has its own character and it is these different character (terroir) qualities that the Eguren family wants to bring back in the wines.

The Organza from Sierra Cantabria is a blend of the Viura, Malvasia & Garnacha Blanca grapes and comes from the old vineyard San Vicente de la Sonsierra.
After manual picking, a cold soaking of the grapes takes place for 12 hours to extract extra flavor and aroma from the grapes. Fermentation takes place in new French oak barrels. Followed by barrel maturation for 9 months and battonage (stirring the dead yeast cells for extra body and volume) twice a week for the first 6 months.

This is a beautiful refined white Rioja with beautifully refined oak and a nice butterscotch. White fruits on the nose and good acidity on the palate and again beautiful fruit notes with refined oak and vanilla. This is a very beautiful elegant white wine that is always made between 6 and 9 thousand bottles a year.

Sierra Cantabria embodies the essence of the Eguren family . More than 10 years ago, Marcos and Miguel Eguren created a white wine called "Organza," referring to the light fabric that adorns wedding dresses, which indicates its softness and delicacy. The same reference is made for "Sierra Cantabria Otoman", which refers to another type of silk, made of fabrics that are produced in Turkey. This fabric gives the same vitality and freshness, while retaining the unique soft characteristics of the Sonsierra environment, where the grapes of this wine come from.
