About Vinos de Cariñena

Renowned for its distinct stone soils, D.O.P. Cariñena is Spain’s foremost producer of old-vine Garnacha and Cariñena. Cariñena is located in the heart of the Ebro Valley in Spain’s northeast region of Aragon, bordered by the Pyrenees and France to the north, and Catalunya to the east. The region’s prominent strategic situation as a gateway to the rest of Europe has long defined centuries of winemaking history, dating back to the Roman era. Planted at high altitude, the vineyards descend into dramatic windswept plains that benefit from extreme day-to-night temperature differences, ideal conditions for rich, expressive wines crafted from layers of rock, mineral, and earth. There are over 1,600 wine growers cultivating the region’s 35,000 acres of vines. Visit to learn more about Vinos de Cariñena and the leading producers in the region: Grandes Vinos y Viñedos, Bodegas Paniza and Bodegas San Valero.
