Campo de Borja | Campo de Borja Wine

With all the attention going to Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Priorat, this region located in the stony villages of Aragon, is finally getting its turn on the spot-light. Thanks to Bodegas Alto Moncayo, all of a sudden everybody wants to drink Campo de Borja wines. This region was classified as a DO in 1980 and is known as the king of Garnacha (know as Grenache in other countries), which is the primary planted grape, and sources claim that the grape originated in the region of Aragon. Full bodied, bold reds are crafted here and value abounds in this historic and medieval region. Top 3 wineries in this region are: Bodegas Alto Moncayo, Bodegas Aragonesas and Bodegas Borsao.
