D.O. Pago de Arínzano
Situated in the North-East of Spain, between Rioja and Bordeaux, lies the stunning Propiedad de Arínzano, a protected area rich in natural habitat. The magnificent entrance to the winery, designed by renowned Spanish architect Rafael Moneo, provides the inspiration for a new brand identity for the Arínzano Estate.
The Arínzano estate stands out based on the uniqueness of the terroir, its history, art and environment, and the exceptional potential to give life to wines that would be a reference of the highest quality and singular character. The aim is to create wines that express the singular character of the Arínzano estate vineyards. We use the most advanced and careful techniques to guarantee an artisanal treatment through the whole winemaking process, and we pursue a viticulture that not only respects, but actually favours the natural environment.
As a result, Arínzano is one of the few estates in all of Spain to be recognized with Pago status, and the first Pago in the North of Spain.
