The Navarro Correas family descends from the Correas family, an old and prestigious name related to the production and manufacturing of high-quality wines. The family history dates back to 1798, when Sir Juan de Dios Correas planted the first vine seeds in the lands of Mendoza at the foot of the Andes ridge. Sir Juan De Dios also played an active role in the public life of Mendoza, where he served as Municipal Councillor in the year 1814 and as governor in 1824. Since mid 1800, and for more than a century, the family used to sell the Winery’s grapes and wines to other producers. Finally, in 1974 Sir Edmundo Navarro Correas, a direct descendant of Juan de Dios Correas, started to manufacture wines bearing his own name.
Delicate red fruit flavours, soft vanilla notes, silky texture and long finish.
Pinot Noir is a catch-all food pairing wine. Pinot Noir is light enough for salmon but complex enough to hold up to some richer meat including duck. In a pinch, when everyone orders a vastly different entree at a restaurant, you can usually win by picking Pinot Noir; it will make everyone happy.
It’s only fitting that the wine that goes with everything matches perfectly with the cheese that goes with everything. Comté (also called Gruyère de Comté) is made just 50 miles east of the most prestigous Pinot Noir vineyards in Burgundy.
