A unique project

The brushland of Navarre, which is characterised by its steep terrains and very little room for growing crops, saw numerous Grenache vineyards abandoned because they were very difficult to access and because of their poor production, which made them unsustainable for local farmers.

This led to the creation of “Unsi”: a winemaking project which aimed to recover these old mountain Grenache vineyards to produce totally unique, premium quality wines.

Our oenologist

Gonzalo Celayeta escudero

Some years ago, the oenologist Gonzalo Celayeta Escudero, in his quest to rescue these old abandoned vineyards, began to lead a project to recover and champion the Grenache grape variety with the aim of producing totally unique, premium quality wines.

This led to the creation of Unsi, a winemaking project using recovered Grenache grapevines grown in areas of brushland, which was launched with two exclusive wines: the red “Terrazas” and the white wine “Terrazas Blanco”. Both come from the best selection of local terraced vineyards.

  • Brushland

The vineyards are located in some absolutely charming spots in San Martin de Unx.

The geography and soil, in short, the low-lying mountain landscape, give the product unique characteristics that make it different from other wines. This is where the characteristic terrain of this landscape comes into its own. The soils are rich in limestone, and are stony in some cases, but have good clay content despite their altitude.

  • Recognition for Grenache grapes

In these areas, covered by scrub ecosystems, where brushland vegetation (thyme, rosemary, lavender, juniper and Kermes oak) surrounds and often camouflages the vineyards, Grenache grapes come into their own and develop their unique characteristics..

The result; is highly characteristic freshness (moderately high acidity and medium-low pH) and hints of fresh fruit and floral nuances that are not to be found in other areas.

  • red unsi terrazas

We are proud to present “Terrazas”, a wine crafted from a carefully chosen selection of local terraced vineyards, where the different levels, altitudes and types of soil fuse together to create a unique sensation which leaves nobody indifferent.
