100% Garnacha (Grenache). Located in Olite, a town in the region known as Ribera Alta, the history of Vega del Castillo dates back to when Teobaldo I, Count of Champagne, first planted his first vines after having discovered the richness of the land and its favorable climatic conditions. This paved the way for local vine growers, even up to today. Later, Charles III, "The Noble," strengthened the wine culture even further on establishing his court in Olite. The vineyards multiplied, and with time came to supply wine throughout his entire kingdom. Once the Navarre phylloxera crisis of 1896 had passed, Don Victoriano Flamarique founded the first cooperative winery in 1910, giving it the name 'Bodega Cooperativa Olitense.' The Vega del Castillo wineries was created in 1999 as a result of the merger between the Bodega Cooperativa Olitense (Olite), the Union de Cooperativas Virgen de Ujue, and the Cooperativa Vinicola Nuestra Senora de Ujue (Pitillas).
