NAVARRA, NATURAL PARADISE
Navarra is located in the north of Spain, between Bordeaux and La Rioja. It is an exceptionally attractive geographical area with a high richness of natural nuances, where the climate and soil are ideal for vine cultivation.
The millenary tradition of vine cultivation and winemaking, where the processes of genuine and artisanal wine production have been passed down from generation to generation, make this land a place of unique personality rooted in the history of old Europe.
Among the grape varieties authorized by the D.O. Navarra, we can find red grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha Tinta, Graciano, Merlot, Mazuelo, Tempranillo, Pinot Noir, and Syrah. Among the white varieties, we can find Viura, Chardonnay, Garnacha Blanca, Malvasia, Sauvignon Blanc, and Moscatel de Grano Menudo.
Currently, in the D.O. Navarra, there are over 10,260 hectares of vineyards cultivated, spread across five wine subzones that span from the central Navarra to the southern area of the region.
SOILS AND CLIMATE
The soils intended for vine cultivation in Navarra are generally limestone and marly-limestone soils in the northern area, and some alluvial soils in the river basins towards the southern region.
From north to south, Navarra presents a variety of climates ranging from the humid and temperate Atlantic climate in the northern region to a more continental and Mediterranean climate in the Ribera del Ebro region in the south.
