Campo de Borja DO
Since this area acquired DO status in 1980, it has been progressively acquiring an identity of its own.
Whilst most production continues to be red wines, the number of crianzas and reservas is steadily increasing, they produce white wines too. Today both red and rosé wines have won the respect of experts, and the intensely fruity, young reds are enjoying considerable commercial success.
The winegrowing heritage of the D.O. Campo de Borja is very rich in relation to Garnacha grapes; the oldest vineyards in the D.O. date back to 1890, and of the almost 4,000 hectares of this variety, more than 2,000 are between 30 and 50 years old. Levels of production are low, but highly appreciatted enologically, because of the complex structure and aroma they endow the wines.
