ARTAZU - Santa Cruz de Artazu– With this wine, the winemakers have
attempted to reestablish the original Navarra variety and maximize
its potential to produce a great wine. This wine comes
from vineyards planted nearly 100 years ago.
Navarra – Artazu established its presence in the historic wine
region of Navarra in 1996, where their production area is well
defined by both brown-limestone and clay-calcareous soils.
The climate in this region is full of contrasts being dry and
hot in the summer, and cold and humid in the winter.
A Focus on Grenache– Artazu places their sole focus on this
ancient variety, Grenache, as to which they find full of charm
and authenticity. Artazu crafts their wines using grapes from
old vineyards nearly a century old, as well as from young
vines – all made in a modern-style cellar.
El SEQUE - Historic Alicante – Inspired by the historical references and
traces left by the Phoenicians and Romans El Sequé is keenly
motivated to create and produce wines with a historical
content that is full of authenticity and personality. They
embrace the region’s Mediterranean climate, gravelly soil
types and expressive Monastrell variety to which they consider
all to perfectly define the concept of “terroir”.
Mediterranean Monastrell – Representing 80% of production
El Sequé uses Monastrell as their premier grape to produce
mature and voluptuous wines characterized by this
disparate climate and aromatic freshness with hints of balsam,
typical of a Mediterranean climate.
