Profile of Ochoa

Ochoa is one of the top wineries in Navarra in terms of quality, value for money and for innovation. It is a family-run firm, Javier Ochoa being the winemaker and Alvaro Ochoa the sales director. The grapes are grown and selected by the Ochoa family. Javier Ochoa is personally responsible for making all of the wines. The bodega is not quite boutique, but production is limited and yields are low, in order to make the wines concentrated with depth and complexity. The vineyards are located in the gorgeous, medieval village of Olite and in Traibuenas. The historic winery dating back to the 1800’s is still used for oak maturation, while the newer winery just outside Olite includes modern installations for vinification and the bottle pavillions. Ochoa is best known for its excellent rosado wines, for its great value reds and recently has gained international attention for its delicious Moscatel sweetie.

“Bodegas Ochoa Navarra Reserva 1997- This chewy red offers ripe cherry and plum flavors, with notes of black olive and licorice. Firm tannins give it structure, but the wine remains balanced. 5,000 cases made” -TM.
