Profile of Enate

Enate calls itself the “Winery of the 21st century”, and its spectacularly designed modern winery attests to that. Located in the stunning Wine Region of Somontano in the Pyrenees Mountains, a region with its roots in wine production dating back to the Roman Empire. Somontano is full of lovely hamlets, medieval monasteries and vineyards. Most of the top wineries in the area, however, are quite new. It is quickly gaining recognition for being a leading Spanish region of quality wines, with low yields and ultra-modern facilities. Completely contrasting with the atmospheric, moldy wine caves of La Rioja and Ribera del Duero, Somontano is becoming known for its avant-garde stylish wineries. Enate, in particular, is heavily involved in the art scene; in fact, they regularly commission Spanish artists to design their wine labels and have an art gallery at the beautiful winery. Enate’s wines are incredibly clean, with depth and complexity and consistently offer value for money. The winery has been very active in promoting wine tourism and is a treat to visit as they have put in place the infrastructure for the wine tourist.
