Estella is a major wine producing centre in the wine region of southern Navarra known as Tierra Estella. Although this region may suffer from its proximity to its better-known neighbour, La Rioja, Navarran wines shouldn't be discounted. Until recently Estella was known almost exclusively for its rosés, but now its whites and reds are equally prized.
