WHO CAN CONTRACT
Located in the northeast of Spain, between La Rioja and Bordeaux, the Arínzano Property occupies a valley formed by the last foothills of the Pyrenees, divided by the Ega river. Its exclusive microclimates create a unique environment for growing grapes. Of the 355 hectares of the property, 128 are dedicated to the cultivation of Pago vineyards. The climate has a significant Atlantic influence, with high variation between day-night temperatures in summer, while the Ega River moderates temperatures. The Arínzano vineyards are located in an area of complex geology, each plot showing differential characteristics. The vineyard soils are mostly tertiary in origin, with varying proportions of silt, loam, clay and limestone-calcareous rock degradation.
The Pago Wine designation is the highest category that a wine can obtain in Spain, superior to the Qualified Designation of Origin. After years of exhaustive demonstration of the unique qualities of its climate, geology and vineyards, Arínzano is the first property in northern Spain to have received this recognition.
