Iberian Regions

Cariñena

Wine has been made in the Cariñena region since the times of the Roman Empire. The vineyards lie at the foothills of the Sistema Iberico mountain range between 500 and 800 meters above sea level. The continental climate has extreme variations of temperature between day and night, and the soil consists of limestone, chalk, and slate with alluvial deposits. Cariñena grows mainly Garnacha grape varietal. Paradoxically, the Cariñena (or Carignan) grape varietal, which originated here accounts for less than 10 percent of the region's production.
