Profile of Ochoa

Ochoa is one of Navarra’s top wineries in terms of quality, value for money, and 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 to make the wines concentrated with depth and complexity. The vineyards are located in the gorgeous, medieval town of Olite and Traibuenas. The historic winery dating back to the 1800s is still used for oak maturation, while the newer winery just outside Olite includes modern installations for vinification and the bottle pavilions. Ochoa is best known for its excellent rosado wines, great value reds and recently 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.
