CEO Birdie Vinos
This is a serious wine. It is made at the Dominio de Cair, the Ribera del Duero estate belonging to the Rioja firm Luis Cañas. Grapes come from 80 year old vines planted at high altitude on low fertility sandy calcareous soils which give very low yields of spectacular grapes. Fermentation takes place in oak vats and production in general is done with the utmost care and attention to detail giving a very limited edition wine of sensational quality and carácter.
