Navarra lies east of and adjacent to Rioja. Growing many of the same varietals of its more famous neighbour and catching up in terms of technological investment it offers great value for money. The regions reputation was built on its rose wines; now the whites and especially the reds, some blended with international varietals, provide excellent drinking.

The large Bodegas del Romero was formed in Cascante by the merger of three Co-operative cellars from the three different areas of Navarra: Ribera Alta, Tierra Estella and Ribera Baja. This has allowed blending from the these sub-areas to achieve perfectly balanced wines. Cascante itself is a small vinegrowing town in the south of Navarra, characterised by small vineyards covering over 1,100 hectares of land. Del Romero is considered to be among the most important Bodegas in Navarra and is a pioneer in the varietal conversion of vineyards. Today it has 1,000 members and a capacity for 12 million litres. Quality results from selection of top grapes from its own vineyards and painstaking vinification.
