Spain - Carinena

Cariñena is located in the province of Zaragoza (Aragón). It is one of the oldest protected growing areas in Europe, the DO having been created in 1932.

The vineyards are located near the centre of Aragón, about 50 km southwest of Zaragoza, on a plateau known as the Campo de Cariñena. The lower vineyards lie at an altitude of 400m, rising to 800m as they approach the Sierra de la Virgen mountains. To the west they border on the Calatayud (DO).

The 1990s was a period of rapid development due partly to the numerous mergers of small wineries and cooperatives, and to the adaptation of the wines produced to a more modern palate.

Garnacha tinta is the most widely planted variety (55%) followed by Mazuelo and Tempranillo , while Viura dominates for whites, although ‘outside’ varieties such as Chardonnay will be seen.
