Navajas Rioja Crianza Tinto is produced by a family winery originally founded in 1918 as Bodegas Arjona, in 1983 the Navajas family become the sole stockholders, changing its name to Bodegas Navajas.  Bodegas Navajas

Background:-

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 adding new modern facilities equipped with state-of-the-art technology.

The family believe that the quality of the wine begins in the vineyards, and for this reason they monitor and control the vineyards which belong to their growers in Rioja Alta and Baja.

Some of the finest fruit from Rioja’s best vineyards are used in Navajas.

They used to sell to the big names but now, wisely, have decided to keep it for themselves – unsurprisingly the Rioja made here is quintessential – soft, round and oaky.

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.

Antonio’s wines are approachability, combining fresh fruit and clean oak characters, this is what makes them so popular with members.

The red wines are 80-85% Tempranillo with Garnacha and Manuela (aka Carignan) making up the balance.

The white is predominantly Viura.
