Learn More About the Carinena Wine Region of Spain

Geography

The vineyards of Cariñena lie in northwest Spain, rooted in the dry rocky soils that cover a 32-square-mile plain on the south side of the Ebro River valley, halfway between coastal Barcelona and dry, inland Madrid, in the autonomous community of Aragon which was once a medieval kingdom.

Climate & Terroir

In the spring and summer, the waves of dry red earth that make up D.O.P. Cariñena are filled in with thickets of small green bushes, Gall oak trees, Aleppo and Stone pines.
