Aragonia

Aragonia is in North Spain and is influenced by the Pyrenees. To the south it opens into the plain where the river Ebro flows. Up to the 1980s alcohol-rich mass-produced wines were focused on. Today, however, quality is important.
Argonia is divided into four regions: Somonatno, Campo de Borja, Calatayud and Carinena. The native vine-growers combinate old traditional varieties with new international ones like Cabernet Sauvignon. Still, many wines are sold in vats and canisters.
On more than 75% of the vineyards red vines are grown. Predominant reds are Garnacha, Tempranillo, Carinena, Mazuela, Monastrell, Pinot Negro, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Predominant whites are Viura, Macabeo, Moscatel, Gewürztraminer, Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay.
