The winery "Bodegas Julián Chivite S.L." is located in the municipality of Cintruénigo in the Spanish region or DO Navarra. It is the largest and oldest winery in the area. A notarial deed dated 26th August 1647 states that its ancestor, María Rubio, widow of Joseph de Chivite, was already producing wine. At that time the farm was still a stagecoach station. In its present form it was built in 1860. Since the death of Julián Chivite Marco (1910-1997), the estate, which is still owned by the family, has been run by his children Julián junior, Carlos, Fernando and Mercedes Chivite. The vineyards cover a total of 550 hectares in Aberin, Marcilla and Cintruénigo. The main varieties are the red Tempranillo, Garnacha Tinta, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as the white Macabeo (Viura), Moscatel de Grano Menudo (Muscat Blanc) and Chardonnay. The winery was completely renovated in 1988
