Calatayud’s Wine Route
Calatayud is a vineyard, Mudéjar and baths land. It contains unique natural resources, such as Monastery ‘de Piedra’, a wide offer of healthy baths, golf resorts and a magnificent heritage to be discovered while visiting cellars and tasting excellent wines.
The huge temperature range between night and day influence decisively in the grapes maturing process, provoking a later vintage than in the rest of Aragón. These changes produce very balanced wines, different from the other Designations of Origin in Aragón: mild and adapted to current market trends.
Red Garnacha is the most important variety, vineyard older than 40 years and harvested in steep grounds.
Calatayud is a land of wines and Mudejar art, as well as a territory with spectacular landscapes, ravines, rivers and providing visitors with unique natural resources like ‘Monasterio de Piedra’. This is an extraordinary location for resting and offers a wide offer of healthy baths in Jaraba, Alhama de Aragón y Paracuellos de Jiloca.
During your visit to this area, you can enter the Designation of Origin Calatayud Wine Museum, located inside ‘Monasterio de Piedra’ touristic resort, specifically in the store or former cellars where food used to be put away. It is divided into three parts: wine is science, culture and quality. The visit is guided for those entering the old 12th century Cistercian monastery.
Wine routes ‘Calatayud’, ‘Somontano’, ‘Campo de Cariñena’ and ‘Garnacha (Campo de Borja)’ have joined to form the brand Enoturismo Aragón, in order to promote all of them as one product intensifying, thus, their market share.
