for this region?

 

The Navarra region lies between La Rioja and the French border, with the Pyrenees to the north, and the Ebro river running up from the south. 
 
It gained notoriety for its juicy, Garnacha-based rosados. However, some good examples of  Tempranillo wines, sometimes blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Garnacha, are making an international  splash. The small production of whites are typically produced from Viura, Garnacha Blanca and Chardonnay.
 
Subregions:
 
*Baja Montana: This northern region on the hills of the Pyrenees specializes in Garnacha rosado production, with some Tempranillo red wines and blends also produced. 
 
*Ribera Alta: Farther down into the flatter land, the area is hotter, with a wider range of soils. This makes it ideal for growing Tempranillo. Much of the style is similar to classic Rioja, with oak aging and blends using small amounts of Graciano and Mazuelo. Chardonnay and Moscatel are also cultivated for whites.  Read more »
