Navarra D.O.

Our philosophy is, from the respect to the earth and the environment that surrounds us, to show the maximum varietal expression .

To deep knowledge and experience, the illusion of turning our passion for wine into a way of life is united, showing in our wines the land where we come with humility and dedication.

Integrated viticulture as a principle of our work, seeking the biological balance through minimal interventionism, allowing the land to express freely.

Raquel seeks to emphasize the unique character of their vineyards by fermenting wine only in cement tanks with native microbes and aging exclusively in large format (400-500 liter) barrels that minimizes oak influence. The Xi'ipal wines are all strictly limited production from unique, single vineyard plots.
