Discover Bodegas BAIGORRI, a benchmark in quality wine tourism
Iñaki Aspiazu, its architect and builder, has been able to masterfully combine topography to, through 7 underground floors, make possible a space for learning and enjoyment that never ceases to surprise the visitor. The result, a totally diaphanous and open winery. Gravity acquires all the leading role in the winemaking process, as it allows the grape to arrive whole to fermentation. All grape or wine movements are carried out by gravity, avoiding any type of mechanical lift.

«More than 15,000 wine tourists visit our facilities every year; managing groups of visits, reservations, calendars, resources and communications with agility is our priority.».
