Bodegas Nekeas Vega Sindoa
PRODUCT: Vega Sindoa Chardonnay
The winery is located in the town of Añorbe in the valley called Valdizarbe, which sits on the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains. This is the most northern region of the D.O. Navarra.
Although the scenic Valley of Valdizarbe has always been considered one of the best areas of production in Navarra, and viticulture here is centuries-old (proof of that are documents from the 15th century found in Añorbe), viticulture was threaten and almost disappeared due to the depressed prices of the grapes and extreme weather conditions. Bodegas Nekeas became one of the first wineries to bring back life to the wine making traditions of this valley.
Althought the winery has evolved in the 30 decades since its birth, the eight founding families: Lizarraga, Urricelqui, Sola, Lacunza, San Martin, Huarte, Erviti, and Echarte, remain committed to the care of the land and the tradition of wine making that was passed down from generation to generation.
The original leader of the group, Francisco San Martin, is still the acting president. Manuel Urricelqui is the technical director, and Concha Vecino is the general manager and winemaker.
