About the 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-m2château-style winery situated just outside the medieval town of Olite. Over the following three years, 240 hectares of family-owned vineyards, with several grape varietals (Tempranillo, Graciano, Grenache, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah,) were planted on the 400-hectare estate.
The 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.
