Julián Chivite

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

There are 18,000 French and American oak barrels available for the ageing of the wines. The "Gran Feudo" line includes red, rosé and white wines. In 1988 the estate "Señorío de Arínzano" was acquired with 125 hectares of vineyards, where the line "Colección 125" is produced. At the end of 2007 these vineyards were classified as Vino de Pago under the Pago de Arínzano designation. The top product of the house is the "Vendimia Tarde Moscatel". In 1999, the "Legardeta" estate, adjacent to "Señorío de Arínzano", was acquired with 160 hectares of vineyards. Finally, in 2001, 60 hectares of vineyards were purchased in La Horra, in the heart of the DO area Ribera del Duero. The Viña Salceda winery in Rioja is also part of the family estate
