BodegasCastillo de Monjardín has 220 hectares of vineyards located at around 700 metres of altitude, on sunny hillsides refreshed by the "Cierzo", strong cold wind characteristic of this area. These vines are between 15 and 70 years old.
All their wines are made with grapes from their own farms, with controlled fermentations, and ageing in French and American oak barrels. They combine the best traditional methods with innovation, using state-of-the-art winemaking techniques. Their aim is to produce top quality wines that represent the land where they are born.

Some wine regions have to bear the weight of their own prestige and fame, and this is certainly the case for Navarra. For many years, the white and reds produced in this region came second to the rosés produced here with the noble Grenacha variety. However, the last two decades have seen ongoing changes in the wine-making sector in Navarra, changes which have completely transformed the styles of wine produced and have been consistently worthwhile, resulting in some of the white and red wines produced in Navarra being ranked among best rated in Spain.
