BODEGAS PAGOS DE ARAIZ lives days of premiere and illusion. And he has called it under a motto: “Good times. Good wines”. On the one hand, it has renewed the design of all its wines, unifying the image that appears on the labels of its main range, modernizing it and adapting it to the new tastes of its consumers and, of course, to the new times. This new image evokes the floral motifs and the color range that can be seen in the aromas and flavors that emanate from these wines and from this endearing wine-growing environment on the outskirts of the medieval town of Olite, in Navarra.
The other novelty is that Pagos de Araiz is launching a new reference: “Pagos de Araiz Rosé”, with a characteristic pale pink colour, which completes the range of wines from a modern and creative winery which, together with the Blaneo line consisting of a Syrah and a Chardonnay, and the red wines from Pagos de Araiz Roble and Pagos de Araiz Crianza, make up a family of reference wines from Navarra. These last two referenced wines have recently been recognized with Gold medals in the Virtus and Pagos de Araiz Roble International Contest considered Best Red Oak Wine of the DO Navarra 2020. One more proof of the care and tenacity with which the Masaveu Bodegas wine group produces.
Pagos de Araiz also launches a new website, www.bodegaspagosdearaiz.com , in which users, in addition to finding information about the winery, its wines and the wine tourism experiences it offers, can appreciate spectacular landscapes and scenes of the winery and the vineyards in harvest period. All under a universal criterion that makes up the history of wine and that gives identity to its motto: “Good times. Good wines”.
Bodegas Pagos de Araiz
With the acquisition of the Finca de Pagos de Araiz in Olite, by the Masaveu family in 2000, a fresh and daring project germinated in the traditional DO Navarra. This commitment began with the construction of an absolutely avant-garde 14,000 m2 château-style winery located on the outskirts of 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. It is the ideal setting for a bright and promising future, linked to the values of Navarra, a classic and emerging wine-growing territory at the same time. state-of-the-art cutting-edge technology, which together with pioneering control procedures, result in an average production of 500,000 bottles per year.
The Masaveu family began to invest in the wine sector in 1974, when it acquired Bodegas Murua, but the family’s vineyard plantations date back to the mid-19th century, specifically in Castellar del Vallés, where the family originated and where Federico Masaveu Rivell began the steps that a century later his descendants would continue.
Since then, Bodegas Masaveu has grown to become a benchmark for the quality of its wines in different DO’s and for the environmental philosophy it demonstrates and the utmost respect for the land, where it has its own vineyards, thanks to which it manages to transmit, in each bottle, the unique personality of each wine.
