D.O. Calatayud. This project is a tribute to Garnacha, a variety historically forgotten and denoted by its complicated viticulture. Project Garnachas is a collection of monovarietal wines made in different areas of the Ebro Valley and from very old vineyards. Each wine expresses all the nuances and singularities of its production area.
