The Somontano Designation of Origin

The Somontano Designation of Origin

The Somontano Designation of Origin was created in 1984 and since then has evolved favourably under the auspices of the Regulating Council with the appearance of new wine brands, the installation of new wine cellars and the professional work of the winegrowers. All this has helped to consolidate and give prestige to this winegrowing area.

A report by AC Nielsen entitled "Wines From Aragon, A Market Opening" stated that Somontano had led the process of total innovation of the production and marketing of wines creating a completely new image through new varieties in Aragon. This is one of the keys to understanding the growth of these wines from the north of Spain. At the same time, the commitment to and prioritisation of the quality of the wines and the price stability round off the mathematical formula that explains the positive trajectory of this Designation of Origin.

One of the latest reports by this prestigious auditing firm finds Somontano to be the third most well recognised Designation of Origin in Spain by wine consumers.
