We will travel South of Pamplona to the medieval town of Olite which is located in a transition area between the mountains and the plains. Due to its Mediterranean climate, Olite is the Wine Capital of Navarre. Various bodegas are sited in the town and surrounding areas.
We will first visit the Royal Palace, an excellent example of the ancient splendour that the town lived during the Middle Ages when it was a Royal Seat. It comprises of the “Old” palace and the “New” Palace built during the 14th and 15th centuries.
The town was the favourite residence of King Carlos III ‘el Noble’ (1337-1425), whose idea of a lavish palace included the presence of exotic animals such as giraffes, lions or buffalo and authentic hanging gardens.
Following the visit to the Palace we’ll head to the winery. In here we will tour the wine making facilities and will learn how wine is made. The walk around the winery will be followed by a tasting of some of the wines.
The actual winery we would be visiting depends on the day of the week and the time of day.
