Originally from Aragon, Garnacha is one of the most widely planted red grapes in the world and the third most widely planted in Spain. This is mainly due to its great adaptability in environments with extreme temperatures and poor soils, characteristics that led the Crown of Aragon to export it to various countries from the 12th century, including Italy. It was there where the variety known as Cannonau, characteristic of Sardinia, would emerge.

Nowadays, Garnacha is also cultivated in countries such as France, Italy, and Australia, among others, enjoying international prestige thanks to the single-varietal wines made with it. These are characterized by their fruity flavor, soft tannins, and relatively high alcohol content. Within this grape variety, there are different types, the most popular being the red Garnacha, followed by the hairy Garnacha, the white, and the tintorera. Today it is the most important grape variety in many wine regions of the Ebro Valley (Rioja, Navarre, Aragon, Catalonia) or central Spain.
