The Family Winery MacRobert & Canals is located in La Rioja. It differs from the rest of wineries with wines D.O.Ca. Rioja for its variety of quality wines that intend to represent in detail every property of La Rioja land.
The Rioja MacRobert & Canals winery arises from a joint project between South African winemaker Bryan MacRobert and the Canals family. MacRobert's passion for the world of wine led him to travel through various wine areas until he reached La Rioja, where in 2013 he decided to join the Canals family, founding The MacRobert & Canals winery.
The project was born with the intention of making a remarkable difference with respect to the Rioja wines that have already been made in the area. The aim of the winery was to produce cut wines that represented to the maximum each type of soil, climate, vineyard and Rioja landscapes, all without losing the quality that characterizes the wines coming from La Rioja.
For this, the family has 5 vineyards located in different points of the Rioja community. The first of them is called Cuatro Corros, in which grapes are grown for the production of claret or rosé wine. El Barranco del San Ginés is another of the estates of the winery, which has the unique vineyard certification of the D. O. C. Rioja that guarantees the quality of the wines made with its fruits.
At finca San Julián the Tinta Graciano variety is grown, which brings freshness and intensity to the wines. Verdecillo and La Virgen complete the family estates.
Currently the winery is located in Logroño, and in it all the phases of wine making are carried out, from the pressing of the grapes to the aging and bottling of the wines.
MacRobert & Canals has three brands of wines, all of them with Rioja designation of Origin: Laventura, La Nave and Barranco del San Ginés.
For its part, the wines of La Nave come from the mixture of varieties of La Rioja Alta, La Rioja Oriental and Rioja Alavesa.
Finally, the brand Barranco del San Ginés is composed of wines made entirely with grapes grown on the farm of the same name, which we remember has the qualification of Singular Vineyard.
