About this winery

Located in the sleepy town of Munébrega, Bodegas Breca was founded by Jorge Ordóñez in 2010 with the mission of producing the finest Garnacha in Aragón.

This red is ripe and generous. A rich, firm texture carries plum and currant flavors, with notes of mocha, loamy earth and smoke. Well-integrated tannins give this backbone, while lively acidity imparts balance. Drink now through 2024.

Un vin chaleureux, riche, puissant et extrêmement complexe qui me semble être une des plus belles expressions du grenache que j’ai eu le privilège de déguster. Sans doute parce qu’il provient de vieilles vignes de grenache d’Aragon, la plus ancienne souche non modifiée au monde. Pour la petite histoire, le grenache est un cépage autochtone d’Espagne qui s’est répandu autour de la Méditerranée à l’époque médiévale. Les raisins qui composent cette cuvée de Breca proviennent de différents petits vignobles centenaires sur l’appellation Catalayud, un terroir de montagne, unique et extrême situé à 1000 mètres d’altitude.
