Consistency, craft, and class single out this impressive winery!
We will travel South of Pamplona to the estate of Arínzano for a visit and tasting at the impressive Pago Estate where wine has been produced since the 11th century. Pago wine is the highest category on the quality scale of Spanish wines. Arínzano was recognized as the first Pago in the North of Spain, and one of the few estates recognized in the whole of Spain.
If weather permits, we would be driven in a 4×4 to a lookout at the top of the mountain. From here we can enjoy fantastic views of the valley, vineyards and winery
The winery Señorío de Arínzano was built by renowned architect Rafael Moneo, winner of the Pritzker prize of Architecture. It embraces the historic compound consisting of the Neoclassical chapel, dedicated to Saint Martin of Tours the patron saint of winemaking, the 18th century palatial residence, perfect spot to enjoy the natural beauty of the estate, and the medieval tower from the 16th century.
The most spectacular room is the enormous barrel aging room. We’ll cross it from above, via a 100 meter long catwalk, a bridge-like structure wedged between the sections of the roof framework. From this perspective the French oak Allier barrels appear to go for infinity!
The visit to the estate will end with a tasting of three of their great wines with the best views in the area, over the vineyards and the historic compound.
