Zintzo wines are derived out of a long-running family tradition of using traditional carbonic maceration methods to make young wines at our small, family-owned winery, located in the old wineries barrio in Villabuena de Álava.
It was in 1994 that Tomas Mtz. De Cañas decided to launch his own brand, Zintzo, under the umbrella of DO Rioja. In 2000, his son Karlos joined the winery, and a new extension was added to the winery, and so, young, aging and white wine began to be produced here using the facilities of the newly built winery.
The new extension features the latest in processing technologies, allowing for greater control of the wines, but all this work is done without losing sight of the winery’s origins and the traditions behind producing quality wines.
