Family legacy

Bodegas JER is a family business, dedicated to the world of wine and is now working in the third generation of the family.

Our origins go back over almost a hundred years, to 1954 when Javier Cantera Cañas builds the first winery in Azofra, a little village located in La Rioja Alta, with the capacity to produce twenty thousand liters of wine. Javier Cantera Corcuera, the founder's son, carrying on with the legacy, decides in 2000 to move part of the equipment to Huércanos, a few kilometers away from the original winery.This new one, as it has more space and infraestructure, lets them create wines of great cuality. This is the beginning of the firm BODEGAS JER, that nowadays has 524 barrels.

Ten years ago, Eva Cantera Rioja, granddaugther and daughter of this lineage, begins to colaborate side by side in every chore of the winery acquiring new knowledge on a daily basis due to the continuous and diverse work in the producuction and marketing of the winery.

Recently, in 2019, we have been rewarded at the New York International Wine Competition as the best rosé spanish winery.

 

Vineyard

Our vineyards are located in the region of Alto Najerilla, a land whose wine tradition goes back to the Middle Age. This set of cross hills, terraces and slopes with different orientations favors the cultivation of tempranillo, garnacha and viura grapes.

The soil

The soil where the vine grows is clay-calcareous alluvial with river stones, perfect for the old vineyards of garnacha. These are small plots of land with no easy access that grow vintages of few output and great complex and structured grapes.
