Ochoa Blanco.

 

CALENDAS of March, the first day of the lunar year, according to the ancient roman calendar. At Ochoa, Calendas represents the start of a new vintage with the bleeding of the vine, the time we start working to obtain high quality grapes to be harvested in September.

The duration between the time our vines begin to produce grapes to when they are ready to be harvested, is aproximately 200 days. The beginning of this process is called CALENDAS. 

It is a dry and aromatic white wine, in which we have selected the best vines of Viura and Chardonnay from our vineyards in Traibuenas and have waited for optimum ripeness to harvest. In this white wine, there is a minor variety, Moscatel (7%), which provides characteristic aromas and floral notes. It is the perfect accompaniment to a meal or wonderful on its own!

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.
