Luis Cañas delves into SMART viticulture

Tuesday, August 1, 2017

Bodegas Luis Cañas is one of the reference wineries of the Rioja DO in Alava. In 2014, it was named "Best Spanish winery of the year" thanks to the quality of its wines and its evolution, passing in only 30 years, of being a modest winery of young wines in Villabuena de Álava, to being considered one of the more relevant and consolidated wineries.

Since 2009, Bodegas Luis Cañas uses the SMART methodology to improve the knowledge of its 450 hectares distributed in more than 870 plots.

This year, Luis Cañas launches a new project, based on the SMART methodology, to understand how the different winemaking processes influence to obtain the desired aromas for each of its wines. To this end, they will develop personalized indicators of viticulture that allow to predict the potential aromas that can have their grapes once elaborated.

These indicators allow you to understand how plant balance, vigor and stress affect the quality and aroma of the vintage. These processes are spatially characterized at agronomic level. The obtained results by the winemaking technicians will improve the strategic decisions of the winery like thinning, harvesting and zoning with qualities and similar potential aromas.
