About This Winery
Bodegas Ateca is headquartered in the village of Ateca, in the province of Zaragoza, fourteen kilometers away from Calatayud. Old vines of Garnacha are planted on the hillsides at about 3,000 ft above sea level. There is a range of soil types throughout the region, however, most vineyards could be described as having gravely slate, clay loams. The clay is at depth and allows for the vines to obtain moisture and be dry-grown even though there is very little rainfall in the region. Aged for approximately 1 year in French and American oak barrels.
At 15% alcohol, the Atteca Garnacha welcomes a breath of air before serving and is a full-bodied red wine best enjoyed with paella, grilled meats, stews, and mature cheeses.
