diversity of aromas.

Chocolate based desserts

 

Our Muscat vineyard is facing south at Traibuenas estate, which allows its little berry to reach an overmaturity with the late harvest. We make a selection of the best grapes of Moscatel de Grano Menudo with high sugar concentration.

Thus, we obtain a natural sweet wine characterized by its aromatic potential and an appropriate balance between sugar and acidity. 


Bright golden yellow colour. Great aromatic complexity; powerful and fresh aromas, toasted hints, raisins of the Grano Menudo muscat variety. On the palate is silky, balanced and very fresh that favours its frutescent, which extends in a cheerful and long after-taste. Some hints of ripe grapes are appreciated, which increase the variety of aromas both on the nose and in the mouth.

Food match suggestions: aperitives with foie, desserts with fruit and strong cheeses like Cabrales. 

We recommend to serve chilled: 6º

 


Today, Bodegas Ochoa has continued the family tradition with the marriage of Javier Ochoa and Marivi Alemán whose daughter Adriana, is now head enologist and responsible for the production and quality control of Ochoa wine. Recently, their youngest daughter Beatriz joined the family business to run the marketing department for the winery. 

Javier Ochoa Martínez, current director of Bodegas Ochoa, took charge of the business that his father Adriano had already relaunched and settled. After studying enology, he joined the winery and guided it into exclusively making bottled wine, promoting the modernization of production techniques. In addition, he built a new winery on the outskirts of Olite , which are the current location of Bodegas Ochoa. 

In 1980, Javier Ochoa was contracted by the Government of Navarre to promote the wine in the province and he became responsible for enology at EVENA (Estación de Viticultura y Enología de Navarra). He worked on this project until 1992. 

In 1992, he came back to the family winery, run by his wife, Mariví Alemán. In that moment, the cellar was boosted by the first varietal wines and an expansion of its activity. 
From 1994 on, he began to work on R & D (Research and Development), which is still a staple and represents one of the trademarks of Bodegas Ochoa. 

The family tradition continues with Adriana Ochoa, enologist, who is responsible for the development and monitoring of the wine. This includes quality control in the vineyard and winery and also responsibility for the R & D projects. Adriana attended Higher Education in France where she obtained the BTS degree (Brevet Technicien Superieur) in Viticulture and Enology (Bordeaux-Blanquefort) and the DNO (National Diploma in Enology) at the University of Toulouse (ENSAT, INP). Her end of degree project was based on the aging of red wines. 

Beatriz Ochoa, who recently joined the family business to run the marketing department, studied International Management in the University of Navarra, with a special interest in Marketing. After some years studying and working abroad, she returned home and works in the winery. 

The future of Bodegas Ochoa is bright having Adriana Ochoa, along with her sister Beatriz, working on and promoting a new series of wines “8a”, another step in the the line of innovation,  where we continue to satisfy all palates.
