The first written records about winemaking in our region date back to 1203 and were founded in the Monastery of Veruela. The monks had an essential role in the development of vinegrowing and winemaking in the region.

In the 19th century, private wineries in the foothills surrounding Veruela began to emerge and in the 1950´s economic difficulties pushed small producers to join their forces and six co-operatives emerge, which nowadays comprise most of the D.O.

 

CAMPO DE BORJA, THE EMPIRE OF GARNACHAset up in 1980, Campo de Borja has almost 7,500 hectares (20-25 Million kgs of Grapes). The vine-growing assets of the “Campo de Borja” D.O. are very rich as regards “garnachas”. Garnacha represents over 60% of the D.O. vineyard plantings. 

The oldest vineyards of the D.O. date back to 1145 and more than 2,000 of the 5,000 hectares of Garnacha are between 30 and 50 years old. The production is not high, but wine wise it is held in high esteem, due to the structural and aromatic complexity they give to the wines. 

 

Garnacha.

 

Borsao is the benchmark for premium Spanish Garnacha. We have been one of the greatest preservers of this variety. We believe that it is specially suited to the region and that we must continue working on improving the wines it produces. 

Garnacha is living a huge revival world-wide thanks to its fruit-driven character, soft tannins and pleasant mouthfeel, that make it perfect to match a great variety of meals.
 
Garnacha originated in Aragón, where Borja is located and it owes its development throughout Europe to the strength of the Kingdom of Aragón, whose expansion made Garnacha be well established in the Rhône Valley in the 19th century, Italy and Sardinia. 

Garnacha is the most planted red variety of the world. Other names for Garnacha; Alicante, Aragonés, Cannonau, Garnaccho Negro, Garnacha Negra, Garnacha Roja, Garnacha Tinta, Grenache, Tintilla, Toledana,  Uva di Spagna. 

During the 80s and 90s, it was extensively uprooted in Spain. However, it has been very well preserved in Aragón, where they are pioneers in single varietal garnacha and have contributed to its popularity among consumers.
