Profile of Chivite

Along with Ochoa, Chivite is certainly one of the best wineries in Navarra. Founded in 1647, the existing winery dates back to 1860. It was completely modernized in 1990 and over the next 6 years, Chivite was propelled into the international limelight thanks in great part to Don Julián Sr. Known primarily for its “Gran Feudo” range of wines, Chivite consistently produces excellent value for money wines. The Chivite Colleción 125 range of wines have extended time in bottle, giving the wines an elegant and fruit forward style. The range was launched in 1985, after their 125th anniversary in the winery. Today, the company is run by the four dynamic Chivite children: Julián, Carlos, Fernando and Mercedes.

Bodegas J. Chivite is one of the finest Navarra bodegas and by far the oldest, with the original winery having been established in the town of Cintruénigo in 1637. Today it is still family-owned and run. Don Julian Chivite, who died in 1996, was the spiritual father of the present-day company and was instrumental in opening up export markets for Navarra wines. The Colección 125 Blanco is one of the finest new-wave Spanish whites on the market today, while its red counterpart is also keenly sought out by collectors and connoisseurs alike.
