History of a predictable success
The origins of Viña Zorzal date back to 1989, the year when Antonio Sanz fulfilled his dream of producing his own wines in Navarra, after spending his life dedicated to the world of wine. In 2007, this new stage resulted in the creation of a company which Antonio’s own sons helped to shape, adhering to the philosophy their father had instilled in them from an early age with regard to meticulous care of the vineyard. Viña Zorzal Wines started out with a prime objective, to retrieve Navarra’s indigenous varieties, which had been so neglected, and to produce varietal wines that would be appreciated for their authenticity and simplicity, could speak for themselves, and be affordable for all.
During those initial years, the work done by the Sanz brothers with the Graciano grape began to bear fruit and receive recognition from the most important critics. The next step was to take on Navarra’s historic variety: the Garnacha. A short distance from the winery, they discovered some real treasure, very old abandoned vineyards in the district of Fitero, where the Ebro Valley ends and the Iberian Mountain System begins. These enabled them to focus their Viña Zorzal project on the land, on producing wines from a particular plot which display the typical characteristics of such a special area. From then on, Viña Zorzal wines haven’t stopped growing and accumulating praise, flying high, like the birds on their labels.
