Pagos de Araiz Winery are living new, exciting days. And they have come up with the slogan: “Good times. Good wines”. They have created a new design for all of their wines by unifying the image that appears on the labels of their main range, modernizing it and adapting it to consumers new tastes and, of course to, new times. This new image evokes floral motifs and the colour spectrum that exists in the aromas and tastes that emerge from these wines and from the charming winegrowing surroundings in the outskirts of the medieval town of Olite, in Navarra.
The other novelty is that Pagos de Araiz has launched a new wine: “Pagos de Araiz Rosé”, with a characteristic pale pink colour, to complete the range of a modern, creative winery that together with the Blaneo line formed by a Syrah and a Chardonnay, and the reds Pagos de Araiz Roble and Pagos de Araiz Crianza, form a leading wine family in Navarra. These last two wines have recently been awarded Gold medals in the International Awards and Pagos de Araiz Roble was considered the Best Red Oak Wine from DO Navarra 2020. Further demonstration of the dedication and determination with which the Masaveu Family Wineries wine group crafts their wines.
Pagos de Araiz have also unveiled a new website, www.bodegaspagosdearaiz.com, where visitors can find information on the winery, its wines and the wine tourism experiences on offer, they can also enjoy spectacular images of the landscapes, the winery and the vineyards during harvest time. Everything revolves around the universal theme of the history of wine which gives identity to the slogan: “Good times. Good wines”.
Pagos de Araiz Winery
With the acquisition of the Pagos de Araiz estate in Olite by the Masaveu Family in 2000, began a fresh and daring project in the traditional D.O. Navarra. This venture began with the construction of an ultra-modern 14,000-m2 château-style winery situated just outside the medieval town of Olite. Over the following three years, on the 400 hectare estate, 250 hectares of family-owned vineyards were planted with several grape varietals (tempranillo, graciano, grenache, merlot, cabernet sauvignon and syrah).
Their innovative management method and the wide variety of wine tourism activities on offer connect the historical, natural and winemaking importance of the area to art and gastronomy. The ideal scenario for a brilliant and promising future, linked to the values of Navarra, a classical yet emerging winemaking territory.
The painstaking care taken in the vineyard and the winery guarantee successful winemaking. The combination of the vines, the state-of-the-art technology and pioneering control procedures, award an average 500,000 bottles annually.
Masaveu Family Wineries
The Masaveu family first invested in the wine sector in 1974, when they purchased Murua Winery, however the family’s first vineyards date back to the middle of the 19th century, precisely in Castellar del Vallés where the family originally comes from and where Federico Masaveu Rivell began a journey to be continued one century later by his descendants.
As a result of the quality of their winemaking in different DO´s, their sustainable philosophy and utmost respect for the land in their estate owned vineyards, thanks to which they transmit the unique personality of each terroir in each and every bottle, Masaveu Family Wineries has grown to become a leader in the sector. Excellence and sustainability is the common denominator in each and every project led by Masaveu Family Wineries in different parts and regions of the country: Murua (DOCa Rioja), Fillaboa (DO Rias Baixas), Pagos de Aráiz (DO Navarra), Leda (Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y León) and Valverán (Asturias).
