The autonomous of Navarra region extends from the central Pyrenees to the Ebro Valley through a variety of landscapes. Spectacular mountains in the north give way to green, undulating foothills and, in the south, an arid plain. The vineyards of Navarra DO are located in the southern part of the region, between Pamplona and the plains. This location is practically unique in the Iberian Peninsula and is marked by the confluence of the Atlantic, Continental and Mediterranean climates. The proximity of the Bay of Biscay, the influence of the Pyrenees and the temperate influence of the Ebro valley are all key factors in giving Navarra its unique range different climates.

Until the 1980s Navarra, a producer of reds, whites and rosés, was best known for its traditional rosé wines, but it has since emerged as one of Spain’s most experienced winemaking areas. This evolution was due, to a large degree, to the work of the Estación de Viticultura y Enología de Navarra (Navarra Viticulture and Oenological Research Station). This centre, established by the Regional Government near Olite, undertakes research and training in the area of viticulture and winemaking and has contributed to turning the DO into a producer of wines as diverse as any found in Spain. Thus, today Navarra makes reds, rosés, whites and Moscatels of quality.
