CUTTING EDGE VITICULTURE AND OENOLOGY
Vineyards are situated in the historically privileged area of the Ribera Baja of Navarra. Varietal Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Viura also known as Macabeo and Chardonnay make up a total planting of 1,400 hectares.
Viticultural management employs the world’s most modern and contemporary technology aiming for ideal vineyard development. Planting is controlled by GPS and laser marking, while vines are monitored by computers viewing soil humidity sensors, local weather stations and daily plant growth data. The methods employed are both modern, environmentally sound and sustainable; at all times respecting local habitat without intervention in water courses or soil movement.
The result is simple - the highest quality grapes. These are harvested and taken to the winery which due to its impressive scale and state of the art technology has become an eye-catching location to a growing public fascinated by the arts of winemaking.
