The winery is just 8km from Pamplona, surrounded by the Sierra del Perdón and Sierra del Sarbil, with the Arga River as a natural boundary. Bodega Otazu is one of the few Spanish wineries that has obtained the Pago appellation-- the highest certification for the quality of its vineyards. The winery dates to 1840 and owns 110 hectares of vineyards.
Otazu Premium Cuvee is a rich red blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, and 20% Tempranillo, aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. James Suckling scored the 2013 vintage 94 points and TOP 100 SPANISH WINES OF 2017 #85! "An impressive wine with plenty of rich dark cherry fruits framed in modern, spicy oak. The palate is plush with cocoa powder, dark ripe plum and plenty of smoothly rendered tannins."-James Suckling
