Viña Zorzal is located in the Southern part of the Navarra DO, very close to the border of Rioja. Founded by Antonio Sanz in in 1989, the guiding principles here have always been sustainability and a return to historical grape varieties. With the coming of age of Antonio's three sons, Xabier, Iñaki and Mikel, the winery Viña Zorzal (aka “thrush", like the bird) was born. Like so many father/son stories, the children have adopted the idea of the father and taken it further. The farming is now organic with cover crops between rows and the focus is on making higher quality, site specific wines that respect history but also look to a brighter future. They make a series of single varietal wines focusing on native Navarran grapes. Most of the 40 ha vineyards are in pure rocky stony soils (rather than the overcropped flats of Navarra).  

  • Farming: Organic
