About Bodegas Amaren
The history and origin of Bodegas Amaren remain intricately linked with Ángeles. The winery got established and set up in her honour in 2016. Ángeles was the wife of the wine estate’s founder, Luis Cañas, and the mother of the owner of Bodegas Luis Cañas located in the comarcas of Rioja Alavesa, Juan Luis.
The venture and endeavour for Bodegas Amaren started in 1995 when Juan Luis Cañas initiated the planning stages to produce several different and diverse types of wines. He wished to make drinks that expressed and delivered the personalities and characteristics of the distinct grapevine varieties to their fullest potential. During this time, Ángeles, his mother, passed away. It led him to create a new fragrance named Amaren Reserva Tempranillo 1995 to honour his deceased mother. In addition, Juan and his father, Luis, set up Bodegas Amaren. “Amaren” is of Basque origin and translates to “of the mother.” The father and son duo wished to pay their respects to Ángeles through the winery and thank her for their efforts and love. Since its establishment, Juan has worked tirelessly to build the fame and reputation of Bodegas Amaren.
