Bodegas Breca


This winery is locatated in the Spanish region of Catalayud. The landscape here is hilly and dotted with with impressive architecture, with relics of the Roman, Moorish and Christian occupations. The region is mostly parched, although the many rivers that zigzag it provide respite. It was the Romans who introduced viticulture to the region, and despite periods of neglect and boom, grape growing has continued to this day. The region is known for its big, bold red wines and this winery focuses particulaly on the Garnacha variety. The continental climate with extremely hot and dry summers is mitigated by the vineyard's elevation which allows a better balance between residual sugars and high potential alcohol. The vineyard sits on well drained, loose and rocky soils mainly made up of limestone.

 

Because of the harsh climatic conditions here, yields are typically very low. However, the wine that is produced is of high quality, making it very sought after. In fact, the winery is part of the prestigious Jorge Ordonez group, which recognises the only the very highest quality in Spanish viticulture.
