This winery is one of the first ones to bring back the vineyards to the valley, by the hands of an energetic winemaker, Concha Vecino, and an innovative vineyard manager, Jose Manuel Urricelqui. The winery is located in Añorbe, in the valley of Valdizarbe , north of Navarra, in the foothills of the Pyrenees . This is the most northern location of the Navarra vineyard, and the most northern location of the Spanish vineyard with the exception of the Txakoli D.O. Grapes are sourced from the estates of 528 acres located between 1,350-1,500 ft. above sea level, well-oriented and constantly battered by light winds.

Wine AdvocateThe most expensive wine in the Bodegas Nekeas portfolio is the 2013 Vega Sindoa El Chaparral Old Vine Garnacha. Made from vines planted between 1890 and 1930, with fermentation in French oak, aging on its lees in barrels for five months, it boasts a deep ruby color as well as chalky kirsch liqueur notes intermixed with hints of herbs, licorice and pepper. This dark ruby-hued, medium-bodied, heady, spicy 2013 is a classic Grenache. There are 2,000 cases of this stunning value that, like all of these offerings from Bodegas Nekeas, over delivers. Drink now-2017.

Wine EnthusiastRaw aromas of tomato, spice, herbs and pie cherry accurately announce a pointy, lean, scouring palate. This Garnacha from a cool vintage is dominated by red plum, tart cherry and raspberry flavors that finish short and punchy.
