Calatayud DO is a wine region in Spain’s Aragón province.

Established in the late 1970s, Campo de Borja DO is a wine appellation in the Aragón region of Spain. The area has a rich history of winemaking dating back to Roman times, and is notable for its distinctive microclimate, which imbues its wines with a unique character. Garnacha is the principal grape variety, delivering deeply concentrated, aromatically complex mono-varietals and blends.
One of Europe’s oldest protected wine regions, Cariñena DO was established in 1932 in the Aragón region of Spain. Grapes grown here experience extreme diurnal and seasonal temperature variation, and subsequently develop a unique character and balance of flavours. Historically dominated by the namesake Cariñena (Carignan) grape, Garnacha is now the appellation’s chief variety with international grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah also finding increasing success here.
Taking its name from the Spanish for ‘under the mountains’, Somontano DO is located in the foothills of the Pyrenees in Spain’s Aragón region. In stark contrast to much of this arid region, the Somontano landscape is lush and green on account of its significant rainfall and abundant water systems. Red and white wines are permitted here from a variety of grapes such as, Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha, Merlot, Gewürztraminer, Macabeo and Chardonnay. Garnacha-based rosé (rosado) wines are also a staple of this region, whose offer is increasingly held in high regard.
