Antonio Sanz began making his own wines in Navarra in 1989. After 2007, his sons then joined him in winemaking where they continue their father’s quest for making good wine starting in the vineyard. In their work, they create wines from local grape varieties that have almost been forgotten. The family is actually recognized for their work in bringing the Graciano variety back to life. While their focus was on the region of Navarra up until 2014, they began to bring on other vineyard sites from the DOC Rioja.
Typically sourcing their fruit from Navarra, this wine is sourced from Najerilla Valley in Rioja Alta. “El Inquilino” means tenant, referring to the Zorzal family “flying” (like the Zorzal bird) to the neighboring Rioja to source these grapes.
