Chivite Winery Guide


Last updated: December 8, 2023

Winery Overview

Founded in 1647, Chivite is one of the oldest wine dynasties in Spain. Eleven generations of Chivites have passed down the legacy of the winemaking tradition. The existing winery dates back to 1860. It was completely modernized in 1990. And in 1992, Julián Chivite Marco, who was instrumental in opening up export markets for Navarra wines, recieved the Order of Agricultural Merit from the King of Spain.

Following the acquisition by the Catalan group Perelada in 2017, the Chivite winery underwent significant changes under the continued leadership of Julián Chivite, the eldest of Julián’s children. During his tenure, the company underwent a comprehensive restructuring of its portfolio. As a result, Bodegas Gran Feudo, which was previously part of Chivite, now operates as an independent winery with a distinct focus on producing commercially-oriented wines. Notable examples include their flagship rosé and the red wine Viñas Viejas, highlighting the richness of old vines. Additionally, Bodegas Gran Feudo expanded its offerings to include the Baluarte range from Rueda and Ribera del Duero.

One of Chivite’s most iconic wines is the “Colección 125,” a flagship wine created to celebrate the winery’s 125th anniversary. This wine represents the pinnacle of their craftsmanship and is crafted from carefully selected grapes, reflecting the best expression of Navarra’s terroir.
