This region’s microclimate, a consequence of its geographic location as well as the orography of the land, gives the wines made at Otazu a marked aromatic character.

The Pago wines are red, Señorío de Otazu, made with Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo and Merlot; and the white Señorío de Otazu Chardonnay Barrel Fermented.
