The new image is a return to the origins, highlighting the history, Puente la Reina, the Camino de Santiago, as well as the unique natural environment in which the winery is located; in short, everything that makes them unique.
Puente La Reina, 23 May 2022. The presentation of the new image of the Señorío de Sarría wine range took place at Bodega de Sarría. The event marked the launch of the wines of the Bodega D.O. Navarra in front of more than 130 people, including the authorities and the wine, gastronomy and hospitality sectors of Navarre.
The event was held at the winery itself, founded in 1953, located in Puente la Reina, in the Señorío de Sarría, in the heart of the Camino de Santiago, with more than 100 hectares of vineyards of multiple varieties that stretch over the towns of Puente la Reina, Olite and Corella.
The new brand image of Sarría reflects in its labels, centuries of history, a return to the origin that carries all the grandeur and distinction of the Señorío de Sarría. The aim has been to recall Puente la Reina, his own town, to reflect the natural and unique surroundings of this area and the concern for sustainability and care for the environment.
These are wines that are representative of their Navarrese land, their traditions and ancestral methods which, in perfect harmony with the most avant-garde winemaking vision make up the present of Señorío de Sarría.
On this occasion, Fernando Zaratiegui, Managing Director of the BORNOS Bodegas & Viñedos wine group to which Señorío de Sarría belongs, its winemaker Milagros Rodríguez and the chef Nacho Gómara from the Verduarte restaurant in Pamplona (one Repsol sun), were in charge of accompanying and guiding the guests at the premiere of this new range of wines, with a menu that was especially created for this occasion paired with the wines of Señorío de Sarría,
The event began with a speech of Fernando Zaratiegui, who explained to the attendees the work and effort that has been made by the winery to transfer to the new image the differential values that define them, “values that are a reflection of history, tradition, the Camino de Santiago, enthusiasm and the unique natural environment in which we find ourselves,” he said.
This new range shows a return to savoir-faire, good manners and respect for quality, “wines that represent a return to the origin with robust and deep roots. An exercise that exudes natural elegance and recovers all the grandeur and distinction of the Señorío”, emphasized Zaratiegui.
After the presentation ceremony, there was a tour of the winery and its vineyards, with more than 60 years of history, where different grape varieties such as Garnacha, Graciano, Mazuelo, Tempranillo, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon are grown.Minutes later, chef Nacho Gómara prepared a show cooking for the guests made of warm asparagus with vegetable vinaigrette, artichoke and Jerusalem artichoke from the vegetable garden and natural beans from La Ribera with wild borage. These creations have been paired with three of the wines of the Bodega: Señorío de Sarría Chardonnay, Rosado Viñedo Cinco and Reserva. The small exhibition was followed by a meal with a menu made up of ten dishes that the chef from Cascante had prepared ad hoc for this especial occasion and which those present were able to enjoy in full.
Finally, Milagros Rodríguez, oenologist and technical director of Bodega de Sarría, offered a tasting of some of the wines presented, where the guests enjoyed a journey through the winemaking history of the Señorío, which helped them to better understand these wines from D.O. Navarra, their different styles and their high potential.
The presentation and the history of the winery left a lasting impression on the hearts of all those present.
Señorío de Sarría Chardonnay
It is a young white wine made from 100% Chardonnay grapes. Straw yellow in colour with green tones, it is powerful and fruity on the nose, with hints of white flowers and exotic fruits. Fresh and balanced, with excellent acidity.
Señorío de Sarría Viñedo Cinco
This is a premium rosé wine made using the traditional saignée method from old-vine Garnacha grapes, the Navarrese grape variety par excellence, which Bodega de Sarría uses to make its rosé wines, because it provides a very fresh, aromatic and sweet fruit, accompanied by a silkiness and delicacy on the palate that cannot be achieved with any other variety.
Señorío de Sarría Reserva
It is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Graciano varieties, aged for two years in French and American oak barrels and one year in the bottle. Dark cherry red in colour, with an intense aroma on the nose, with notes of vanilla, cinnamon, toast and spices. Powerful, tasty, structured and complex on the palate, with well-integrated wood.
