Navarra annually produces 84,218,523 kilos of wine with the official origen stamp of Navarra. This includes all types and varieties of wines. Logically not all of it is consumed by the people of Navarra as that would mean an average of more than than 190 kilos per adult. Navarra exports around 37 % of all wine produced to countries such as the United Kingdom, Germany, China, Switzerland and Holland.

But…Lesakarras? Not People of Pamplona?
