A family winery originally founded in 1918 as Bodegas Arjona but in 1983 the Navajas family become the sole stockholders, changing its name to Bodegas Navajas. Bodegas Navajas
The year 2000 was a turning point in the Bodega’s history when they invested in enlarging and improving the winery and cellars with a new barrel-aging area and new modern facilities equipped with state-of-the-art technology.
Navaja’s family believe that the quality of the wine begins in the vineyards and for this reason they monitor and control the vineyards which belongs to their growers in Rioja Alta and Baja
Bodegas Navajas started life as Bodegas Ariona, which was founded in 1918 outside the small town of Navarrete in La Rioja Alta.
In 1983, after five years of investing both financial and managerial support in the company, the Navajas family became majority shareholders, and changed the name to reflect the true occupant of the driving seat.
Antonia Navajas Senior built the first Navajas bodega at that time, now supplanted by a state-of-the-art facility introduced by his son Antonio Jr., now in charge. Here, the wines are fermented in stainless steel tanks before ageing in new oak barrels.
Navajas get their hands on some of the finest fruit from Rioja’s best vineyards. They used to sell on the fruit to the big names including CVNE but now, wisely, have decided to keep it for themselves.
Unsurprisingly the Rioja made here is quintessential – soft, round and oaky. The approachability of Antonio’s wines, which combine trademark fresh fruit and clean oak characters, is what makes them so popular with members.
All the red wines are 80-85% tempranillo with garnacha and mazuelo (aka carignan) making up the balance. The white is predominantly viura.
