Bodegas Aragonesas is the largest wine estate in Spain's Campo de Borja DO where grapes have been grown for over 800 years. The estate is located in the small town of Fuendejalon in the foothills of the Iberian Mountain Range in the northern province of Zaragoza. This extremely dry, sunny area of Spain is blessed with a stark contrast between day and night time temperatures that make it ideal for grape cultivation. The vineyards are situated on south-eastern facing plateaus that rise between 450 and 500 meters above sea level on rocky, well drained soils. The farmers who live in Fuendejalon and nearby Magallon grow mostly Garnacha, but some international varieties are grown to add complexity to the estate's blends. The Garnacha vineyards - some planted over 100 years ago - produce very low yields which give wines of deep ruby color and rich, full-bodied flavors that are soft and complex.
