Profile of Arzuaga Navarro

The prestigious Arzuaga Navarro winery was founded by the ambitious and dynamic Florentino Arzuaga, in the wine village of Quintanilla de Onésimo, 20 minutes away from the spectacular crusader castle in Peñafiel. The town of Quintanilla de Onésimo is considered to be Ribera Del Duero’s “Golden Mile”, as it is home to such wine superstars as Vega Sicilia, Pingus and Viña Mayor. In fact, Arzuaga’s vines nestle right up to Vega Sicilia’s vines. The beautiful Arzuaga estate is located in the most privileged part of the Duero region, rising 100 metres above the river. The grapes ripen very evenly here, with plenty of sunshine during the day and much cooler temperatures at night. This wine region of Spain is extremely dry and as such, the region can happily note an absence of fungal diseases. The Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) grape is the celebrity for the Ribera del Duero wines, and Arzuaga use it magically, combining and complementing it with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

The Arzuaga estate is completely unique in that apart from its prime hectares of vines growing next to the winery, Florentino also has vineyards located next to his wonderful “La Planta” game reserve. On the reserve, there are hundreds of wild boar and stag. Arzuaga can organize private wine tours for individuals and very small groups, taking in a visit to the winery and cellars followed by a fascinating “safari” tour of the game reserve. Florentino’s passion for his animals is evident just looking at the logo for Arzuaga, which is a stag. Apart from the beautiful game reserve, Arzuaga have been pioneers in the concept of wine tourism in Spain. They created a stunning hacienda-style “wine hotel”, one of the first in the country. The building that encompasses the hotel also houses the winery, the cellars and installations, a fantastic restaurant (where you can order their excellent wines without the unfair markup) and various salons, sumptuously appointed with antiques and tapestries. The bedrooms look over the vines, the suites are superb and the staff are extremely friendly. Staying here at Arzuaga is an absolute treat. Cellar Tours are enthusiastic to recommend Arzuaga’s wine hotel and restaurant, both of which we visit on our luxury wine tours to Ribera del Duero.
