GRUPO LA NAVARRAGLN
BELASCO FAMILY HISTORY
This is our story
In the winemaking process, the vineyard is the scenery of many significant experiences. They begin with year-round care and attention given to the vineyard, and continue with the selection of each grape variety at its optimal time. The work is continued once the grape arrives at the winery where the best practices are adopted, and comes to an end when the successful completion of this entire process yields a wine with a distinct personality that conveys the identity of a land. The Belasco Family has been undertaking this work for 8 generations.
Our project in the world of wine is today a reality for our company. Constant growth since the 1980s is thanks to our enthusiasm for each vintage, which we strive to improve upon each year. We have completed the hardest task of establishing ourselves in this arduous industry, and we are now striving to be the benchmark for innovation in the wine world. Because of our strong commitment, striving at every step, and sweating every success, we are moving in the right direction.
“Wine is our driving force, our inspiration. Our vision of the future. Our passion. It is a dream come true”.
Juan Ignacio Belasco
