the land
of diversity

Located in the North of Spain,
Navarra is diverse in geography
and history. The region extends from
the Pyrenees Mountains to the Ebro
basin located on the edge of Rioja Baja.
In the northern portions of Navarra,
the terrain is very mountainous. This is
the area Hemingway immortalized
in his novel, Fiesta. Further south, the
landscape becomes more pastoral.

The climate is influenced by both the
Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic
Ocean. The Pyrenees mountains help
to protect the area from France’s
Mistral winds.
The history of this ancient kingdom is evident in the monumental
patrimony it has left behind in its diverse towns and cities: Places as
evocative as Roncevalles where Charlemagne, Charles the Great
fought and lost; the smooth landscapes of Valle del Baztán, the beauty
of Valle del Roncal, the peacefulness of Selva del Irati and the Sierra
de Urbasa; the medieval town of Artajona; Estella renowned for its
historic-artistic patrimony; Olite, medieval home of Navarra Kings;
the surprising landscape of Las Bardenas; Tudela, the crossroads
of France and Spain and Pamplona, the capital, founded
by General Pompeyo where the diversity of cultures of its
inhabitants has been carefully guarded right up until the present.

Distinctive cuisine
Perhaps one of the greatest attractions Navarra has to offer and
where it stands in a league of its own, is its distinctive cuisine.
Utilizing outstanding locally-grown produce such as piquillo
peppers, hearts of lettuce, artichoke hearts, and asparagus,
meats, savory cheese like Roncal and the smokey Idiazábal,
and of course, wines and liqueurs. These products have been
cultivated and prepared by expert hands over generations to
evolve into the art form it is today.

The gastronomy of Navarra has truly
earned its reputation as one of the
best in the world.
A long History
of Wine Making

Vineyards were present in
Navarra during the days of the Roman
occupation, and most likely were
cultivated even before the Romans.
Conquered by Charlemagne in the
eighth century, Navarra shortly
thereafter gained its independence
to become a kingdom with its own
civil rights. This arrangement is still
in effect today.
The Moors were never able to
obtain a very strong hold in this
area of Spain, so their influence is
minimal. During the Crusades of the
Middle Ages, pilgrims came through
Navarra on their way to Santiago
de Compostela along “The Way of
Saint James”.
With them came monks, who had
established vineyards throughout
the area. The French influence
returned to the Kingdom of Navarra
in the thirteenth century and
remained for the next three hundred
years. When Ferdinand and Isabella
(the Catholic Monarchs) came to the
throne, Navarra became annexed
permanently to Spain.

One of the longest-established wine designations of origin, Navarra
combines traditional stock with continental varieties from other famous
wine-producing regions to offer a wide range of high-quality wines.

The bodegas are well-known for their combinations of traditional varieties
such as Tempranillo and Garnacha with continental varieties as Cabernet
Sauvignon and Merlot. The red wines are usually a blend of iberian
and continental grapes offering complexity and degree of quality which
outshine not only the newly emergent wine regions of the world but are
also manifestly superior to similar wines produced by revered, centuries-
old designations.

Perhaps the best-known wines of Navarra are its “free-run” rosado, light
strawberry in colour, fruity in aroma and of unparalleled taste. However,
Navarra also produces many red and white wines which are held in high
esteem throughout the world.

Bodegas Azul y Garanza

Our vines occupy various plots located
next to the Natural Park Las Bardenas
Reales of Navarra, in the north of Spain,
sharing the same terrain and climate
as this desert area. It’s shallow, clay-
traced soil, minimal water, and irregular,
somewhat minimal rainfall 11.81 in/year
(300 mm/year), as well as extreme
contrasts in temperatures between
day and night, 59ºF (15ºC). Due to
these singular geoclimatic conditions,
unique in Navarra, our vines offer a
lower production of small grapes that
have a high concentration and a perfect
As well, the grapes are organically grown,
without pesticides, insecticides, or
chemical fertilizers that wear out the soil.
A great wine begins at the vine. In the
cellar, we ferment all our wines in small
cement tanks, with indigenous yeast.
Before starting up Azul y Garanza we
had wine-making experiences working in
different countries like Australia, South
Africa, Argentina, Burgundy, and in
Spain: Penedes Montsant and Priorat.
