Domaines Lupier humble beginnings began in Navarra when husband and wife Enrique Basarte and Elisa Ucar left their jobs, took out a loan and began purchasing abandoned plots of old-vine Garnacha around the village of San Martin de Unx. The estate now owns 17 hectares of bush-trained Garnacha across 27 separate plots, the oldest of which was planted in 1903. ‘Mountain viticulture’ is at the heart of their philosophy, with every plot situated at 600-750m above sea level. Enrique and Elisa strive to produce wines with a sense of place and time. The rugged landscape is scattered with wild herbs and flowers, which are all reflected in the wines’ subtle and complex aromatics. The combination of high altitude, Atlantic influence and limestone soils impart an innate freshness and acidity to temper the intense concentration from the vines. The dry-farmed vineyards are certified organic, with biodynamic principles followed since the project’s inception.
