SiSenyor Cariñena

DOP Cariñena

 

An area at an altitude between 700 and 900 metres, with high thermal contrast between day and night (+/-10 ºC) in a continental-Mediterranean climate. Low production vines almost a century old grown in stony soil. Those qualities characterize the wines in the area where Gran Anyada, along with Nacho Lázaro, owner of Bodegas Añadas SA, and the oenologist Óscar Martínez, has been able to produce excellent products that their clients and friends can enjoy.
