We will travel East of Pamplona for a visit and tasting at the impressive Estate adjacent to the Irache’s Monastery and on the St James’ Way
One hundred and fifty years ago, the Larrainzar family acquired this extraordinary estate in Ayegui. It was here where Luis Larrainzar, the great-grandfather of the founder of the Pago de Larrainzar Winery, established a vineyard of Tempranillo grapes and a small winery with limited production that was awarded a gold medal in the wine competition held in connection with the 1929 World Exhibition in Barcelona.
The vineyard is the soul of Pago de Larrainzar. Tempranillo, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Garnacha, from different clones and stocks, are the grape varieties cultivated. The harvest is carried out by hand, in small boxes, selecting bunch by bunch.
First we will visit the Viticulture Garden where we will see different vine training and pruning techniques applied to the grape varieties. Next we’ll visit the Pago de Larrainzar vineyards, starting with the excellent views from the historic overlook spot. In the winery we will tour the different wine production areas and explain the steps followed by the grapes in the wine making process.
The visit to the estate will end with a tasting of their great wines in the winery’s social area overlooking the Estate.
