Somontano, with centuries of wine tradition, won its DO status in 1984, and ever since it has produced impressive results. The vineyards, located in the foothills of the Aragonese Pyrenees, have an ideal altitude and climate as well as an interesting range of grape varieties and wineries intent on making unique, high-quality wines.
The excellent results obtained are reflected in the attitude of the domestic and international market, which have created a demand for these products - elegant, structured, and suitable for long life.
The wines, made from fifteen native and foreign grape varieties, have a refreshing lightness and delicacy, and show the efforts undertaken by the local vine growers and bodegas. This has been one of the keys to the DO’s success and to the creation of critical and sales success.
