Pago de Larrainzar Winery, Respect and Love for the Land
Pago de Larrainzar Winery is adjacent to the Irache Monastery, at the foot of Montejurra in the beautiful estate of Ayegui. The winery is the result of the dream of Miguel Canalejo Larrainzar, who had an interest in winemaking since childhood and loved his land deeply. The family has owned this estate for 150 years and respects the history and traditions while making great wines. The family had stopped winemaking, but in 2001 Miguel decided to restart the winery making his own wines. Along with his kids, Miguel Lasarte and Irene Lasarte, he opened the Bodegas Pago de Larrainzar in 2006 with experienced winemakers Ignacio de Miguel Poch and Igor Crespo.
The team at Pago de Larrainzar Winery shows immense professionalism and passion for winemaking and is responsible for the winery’s success.
