Bodega Otazu: Wine, Art, History and Nature

About the winery
Located next to Pamplona, only 60 km from the Cantabrian Sea and 35 km from the Pyrenees, Bodega Otazu lies nestled in a small valley crossed by the river Arga and surrounded by the sierra del Perdón and sierra del Sarbil. It is the northernmost red wine producing winery in Spain. The philosophy of Bodega Otazu is to produce premium wines expressing its origin and the essence of the terroir they are coming from. This is the reason why the entire wine range is exclusively produced with the grape varieties grown in this single-estate vineyard of 116 hectares: Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Berués. Bodega Otazu is one of the 19 Spanish wineries which were given the highest certification and recognition in Spain – Pago Appellation of Origin – guaranteeing the selection as well as the unique and outstanding personality of each of its wines.

History & Geography
The winemaking tradition of Otazu dates back to the 12th Century when, due to its proximity to the Arga River, these lands were part of the Camino de Santiago de Compostella, which is why the Señorío de Otazu was established here with its vineyard. Later, in 1840, the winery was built, the first French-style one in Navarra located outside the urban area. This building, has been rehabilitated and turned into a wine museum and contemporary art gallery of Fundación Otazu, and has been extended with the latest winemaking, aging and bottling technologies. Architectonically speaking, its spectacular underground barrels room stands out, being internationally known as the “Wine Cathedral”. Bodega Otazu also has a Feudal Estate dating from the Middle Ages: Señorío de Otazu. It is composed of the Palace of Otazu (16th Century), Church San Esteban (12th Century) and a bird tower (14th Century).
