~ Azul Y Garanza, Organic Bardenas Reales de Navarra, Spain ~

Our vineyards, in the desert
Our vines occupy various plots located next to the Natural Park of the Bardenas Reales of Navarre, in the north of Spain, sharing the same terrain and climate as this desert area-its shallow.
Clay-traced soil, minimal water, and irregular, somewhat minimal rainfall (350 l/m2 per year), as well as extreme contrasts in temperature between day and night (±15º). Due to these singular geoclimatic conditions, unique in Navarre, our vines offers a lower production of small grapes that have a high concentration and a perfect equilibrium.

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.

Artisan Spirit
Wines fermented in concrete tanks
Built between 1940 and 1960, and partly underground, our bodega consists of small concrete tanks with capacities between 4,000 and 20,000 liters, giving a total capacity of 200,000 liters.

The result is an ideal separation, during production, of the grapes according to different soils and grapes varietals. This is a fundamental ingredient in the quality of our wines.It is in this way that our wines are able to express the terroir in a natural manner. To obtain this we use indigenous natural yeast of the grape during the fermentation. Also, we bottle the wine after a light clarification and without filter. In addition, we study carefuly the quality and origin of the oak.

Every birth is a promise of a better world
In addition to work organically we go further on by increasing biodiversity in our vineyards: planting fruit trees and native aromatic plants. Working this way, we break the monoculture and we create a richer ecosystem.

Messages in a bottle
In the same way that a castaway’s bottle, launched into the sea, carries a message, our bottles hold a message as well.
Our message, however, is not a call for help, but rather an invitation to the recipient to enjoy a journey through their five senses-to appreciate the sun, the rain, the land, and the wind. It is an invitation to embark on a path, together with the wine, that leads to a personal exploration of questioning, learning, and enjoyment as well as the question.
