WINERY

Though the winery was founded in 1953, vineyards have existed on its lands for many centuries. 

Mention of the Señorío de Sarría was made as far back as the Middle Ages, when in a chronicle of that era, it was stated that the Lord of Sarría joined up with King Sancho VII (the Strong) in the battle of Las Navas de Tolosa (1212). Many years later, during the 16th century, the history of the Señorío and that of Navarra became further entwined when the then Lord of Sarría (Juan de Azpilicueta), the brother of Saint Francisco Javier (the present patron saint of Navarra), paid for the latter’s studies in Paris with the income received from the livestock and crop farming of the estate. The manuscript in which Saint Francisco Javier thanked his brother for this aid is still kept today.

Although the winery was founded in 1953, history shows that this land has been used for cultivating vines for many centuries. There is a close link between the history of Navarra and the history of the Señorío, as one of the lords of Sarría, Juan de Azpilicueta, covered the expenses of the studies of his brother, St. Francisco Javier, patron saint of Navarra, with the income obtained from the exploitation of these lands.

And it was only many years later that, in 1953, the renowned Navarran businessman, Don Félix Huarte bought the Señorío and undertook the planting of new vineyards and built the winery, where wines under the label of Señorío de Sarría were subsequently vinified and released onto the market. 
 
Years later, in 1981, the winery separated from the Huarte family and set off on a new phase in its history, which was given special impetus in 2001 when a new, ambitious project was set up to renovate the wine-making facilities and the vineyard, and thereby establish this wine estate at the forefront of the domestic and international markets. 
 

Located in Puente la Reina, at the heart of the pilgrims´ route to Santiago, Señorío de Sarría finds itself in an area that offers excellent climate and soil conditions, enabling a range of top quality wines to be made.
