Until the 1980s Navarra was mainly known for its traditional rosés, but from that time onwards it began to emerge as one of the most experienced and important wine-growing areas in Spain.
The 75-year-old Navarre Designation of Origin is the oldest in Navarre. One of the most-defining characteristics of this DO is the range of different terrains and climates within its boundaries. In fact, it is the only area on the Iberian Peninsula where the Atlantic, continental and Mediterranean climates converge.
The 17,000 hectares of Navarre DO vineyards are divided into 5 distinct, wine-making areas – Baja Montaña, Valdizarbe, Tierra Estella, Ribera Alta and Ribera Baja – where well-known rosés, flavoursome whites, fruity young reds, excellent crianzas and the sultry, sweet whites of the muscatel grape are produced. All in all, distinctive wines with big personalities, from Navarre.
