NAVARRA | SPAIN
Situated in the North-East of Spain, between Rioja and Bordeaux, the Arínzano estate occupies a valley formed by the last slopes of the Pyrenees mountains, divided by the winding waters of the River Ega. The unique microclimates of the estate create a singular environment for vine growing. Of the 355 hectare estate, 128 hectares are dedicated to the cultivation of Pago vineyards. The Pago classification is Spain’s highest category for winemaking, above D.O.Ca. It is awarded only to estates that exhaustively demonstrate not only an excellent and unique climate and terroir, but also a winemaking that turns these inheritent qualities into extraordinary wines. After years of exhaustive demonstration of the unique qualities of its climate, geology, and vines, Arínzano is the first estate in the north of Spain to receive this honour.
