The enologist

Patxi Moriones, nuestro enólogo

There are certain people who, although not related to you by blood, are looked upon as a member of your family. After many years working side-by-side, based on a mutual trust, Patxi Moriones is one of those people for us.

He is a Technical Agricultural Engineer, having graduated from the Navarra Public University, and holds a Masters degree in Oenology from the La Rioja University. After 25 years working in his field, he has become one of the most prestigious professionals in Navarra. He is also a member in Navarra’s tasting panel of the community since 2007.

Patxi was born into a family of oenology and viticulture technicians in Navarra, and, as such, he has been surrounded by the art of wine-making throughout his life. In addition, he is one of the region’s leading oenologists in terms of his knowledge of managing and cultivating the Garnacha grape, with which he has been working for years.

He is the technical director of our winery who with passion and dedication to his craft, creates our finest and most elegant wines, but more than that, he is a part of our family.
