The estate is relatively new having been established in 1998 and 'Aroa' is a Basque word that means 'optimum' referring to the ideal time to make wine. Bodegas Aroa is a pioneer in the DO Navarra in organic and biodynamic farming. All the vineyards are organic and follow ancient methods, with only natural products used, allowing nature to do its work.

The soil is clayey - calcareous, fresh, being on the edge of the Mediterranean climate with Atlantic influence climate, sheltered from the Urbasa and Andía.

The dominance of the north wind, along the north-south orientation of the vineyard provides good aeration. To encourage it leaf thinning and pruning are carried out. In addition, they apply infusions of different plants such as horsetail, nettle and sage, which strengthen the plant against possible diseases.

    Needed Decanting

    Hi Margaret, The Aroa is a great red wine thats perfect with Sunday lunch! Roast beef, pork casserole or a vegetable wellington would all be great with this wine. As this is an unfiltered natural wine, there could be a little sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Decanting is definitely a good idea. Thanks again! Alex Co-Founder

    Mellow/fruity

    Well balanced between fruit and slightly spicy flavours that complement each other with a satisfyingly long taste of the main grape variety

    Good light red wine

    When I said light let it not fool you - it is 14.5% alcohol, but you don't feel it! Very light flavours, juicy and very worth to chill down to 13-15C in my opinion. Good red wine to serve with your dinner. Wish it was just a pound or more less expensive.
