Garnacha in Spain

Garnacha is the third most planted red grape variety in Spain (after Tempranillo and Bobal).

The most significant producing area is DO Campo de Borja, DO Sormontano and DO Calatayud, where you find the vast majority of old-vine Garnacha planted in Spain.

Influenced by the mountain chain of the Pyrenees, Aragon is a land of extremes with differents terroirs, elevations (from 400 to 800 m) and climates resulting in different expressions of Garnacha.
