Navarra

Itxas Harri Beltza '19

Although Navarra is known for its rosé production, a new generation of vignerons are showcasing the beautiful expression of Garnatxa (Grenache) found in this region. Navarra is a part of the Basque region, however, it enjoys influence from both the maritime climate of the Basque to the north as well as influence from the continental climate due south near Rioja and Castilla y León.

Navarra is known as the garden of Spain as it is nothing short of plentiful when it comes to beautiful selections of produce. Asparagus, piquillo peppers, borage, cardoons and artichokes, to name a few. Truly a vegetable kingdom.

Ignacio Ameztoi (yes, he also produces one of your favorite Txakolina!) and long-time friend Iñaki Guelbenzu set off to make Navarra wine that could accompany the incredible food of its region. Ignacio and Iñaki would repeatedly visit the area, Iñaki being a gastronomic wiz of Basque cuisine and ingredients. Think of the production's influence as not only a nod to the many trips these friends took together, but to specifically capture the essence of fond food memories and relationships made over excellent wine.

Beltza is a highly enjoyable, refreshing and easily drinkable Garnatxa. The wine is full of crunchy, bright fruit with highlights of stony minerality, reminiscent of an ancient seabed full of limestone that the region sits upon. Aged in tank to capture incredible freshness, the Garnatxa is ethereal. Pair this with almost any meal (seriously) and capture personal gastronomic memories with your friends and loved ones.
