About the Region
Aragon is in the Northeast of Spain and Zaragoza is the capital city for this region. The designation ‘Aragon’ covers four wine producing regions – DO (1984) Somontano, DO (1932) Carinena, DO (1989) Calatayud and DO (1980) Campo de Borja.
This area of Spain is filled with history, castles, cathedrals and even UNESCO World heritage sites. Whilst Tempranillo was the grape of choice, it’s Garnacha that has become the best seller internationally and garnered a lot of positive press and specifically the Campo de Borja area where Garnacha is, by far, the most grown grape variety making it, mainly, a red/rosé wine producing region at over 90% of total production.
