About the winery
This winery in Campo de Borja, an area east of Navarra, is a partnership between U.S.-based importer Jorge Ordoñez, Australian winemaker Chris Ringland and Borsao, a local bodega. It debuted with the 2002 vintage, and every year the wines have improved. They are dense, ripe reds based on low-yield Garnacha, made with traditional methods, but aged in new oak.
Three Garnacha wines are made here. The top of the line Aquilon, the mid priced Moncayo, and the entry level Veraton. The wines are rich, layered, and intense, and have great potential for aging.
Spain cultivates more acres of vineyards than any other country in Europe. Its bodegas make bold, age worthy reds, fresh dry whites and distinctive sparkling wines, along with the many styles and flavors of Sherry, the country's unique fortified wine. With a strong foundation rooted in history and tradition, and a string of excellent vintages to build on, Spain is off to a great start in this new century.
