Bodegas Pirineos, D.O. Somontano

Bodega Pirineos is part of DO Somontano in Huesca province, and is located in Barbastro, en-route to the medieval town of Alquezar. The company was originally the co-operative winery of the region, nowadays it is a proprietary collaboration between Sanlucar Manzanilla producer, Barbadillo, which owns 76% of the enterprise, in conjunction with the Cooperativa Comercal de Somontano. It continues sourcing its grapes from family vineyards in the sandy-soiled foothills of the Pyrenees, which total 950 hectares. Here, local grapes (Moristel) grow alongside Spanish classics such as Tempranillo and Garnacha, along with international varieties like Chardonnay or Cabernet Sauvignon.

Pirineos produce a large number of varietal and blend wines, reflecting the full array of Somontonan wine possibilities. For now, however, TSA focuses on the most interesting offering of Pirineos: a variety grown nowhere else ... Moristel!
