Description

The Cariñena Wine Route runs through the Ebro Valley, Aragón, and is 42 kilometres to the south of Saragossa. It is surrounded by the beautiful, colourful landscapes of the Sierra de Algairén mountain range, the Huerva River and the plains. This large winegrowing region is home to beautiful areas such as Alfamén, Cariñena and Longares, which are where most of the wineries on the route are located. The route offers visitors the chance to see mediaeval and Renaissance architecture and monuments, as well as stunning examples of Mudéjar art.

What are the wines like?

There is a wide variety of grapes along the route, including Mazuela, which has adopted the name of the PDO capital (protected designation of origin): Cariñena. Whites, rosés and young, aged and vintage reds, dessert wines… a large variety for all types of drinkers. The Cariñena PDO covers 14,440 hectares of vines located in the oldest, largest and most renowned winegrowing region in Aragón – and one of the most historic in Spain.

What will I find?

Visitors can enjoy hiking and climbing in beautiful landscapes, as well as a variety of monuments, cuisine and oenology in the area. There are many different wine-based experiences and ideas: wineries, restaurants, accommodation, museums, specialised boutiques and even wine-therapy beauty treatments.
