Ad Libitum and Peña El Gato.
Bodegas Juan Carlos Sancha is a small project located in Baños de Río Tobía (Rioja Alta) in one of the coolest areas of Rioja. We have 9.0 hectares of our own vineyards and organic farming. Our project was launched in 2009. We have a total production of approx. 40.000 bot.
All the winemaking is done in organic farming and we have a natural wine.
We have two lines of wines:
1.- Ad Libitum: This brand covers four varietal wines of native minority varieties Tempranillo Blanco, Maturana Blanca, Maturana Tinta and Monastel de Rioja. These varieties are the result of a study of several years based on the recovery of minority autochthonous grape varieties of La Rioja in which the University of La Rioja has participated.
2.- Peña El Gato:”: This brand covers seven varietal Garnacha wines from centenary vineyards. One of them is made without added sulphur. It is the first time that the influence of the “Terroir” can be tasted.
