I would recommend a visit to Bodega Pirineos in Barbastro, the region capital of Somontano situated close to the mountains. Wines from the Somontano are often referred to as the “new world wines of southern Europe”, with their elegance and vibrating fruity aromas. This is a great region to visit if you’d like to combine your wine experience with hiking in the Pyrenées.
You might have heard of Campo de Borja, Cariñena, Calatayud or Somontano if you’re interested in Spanish wine. These are all wine regions making a name for themselves lately in the wine world, and situated in the Aragón region, just south of Navarra. Wines from Aragon are typically full bodied reds with high alcohol, great for meat or stew, and made with Garnacha, Tempranillo, Mazuela and Cabernet Sauvignon. There are whites as well coming from the region, in which case you will notice Viura and Moscatel grapes.
