Somontano Wine Region Guide

Discover the Treasures of Somontano: Your Ultimate Wine Journey Awaits!


Last updated: January 4, 2024


Situated on a high plateau in the mountainous area of Huesca (known for its ski resorts), Somontano is now a force to be reckoned with. Yes indeed: although the region lost its footing somewhat in the 20th century, a surge of investment (and new ideas) has transformed the reputation of this nascent (created in 1985) DO. The area under vine is one of Spain’s most spectacular, with green fields, hills, wildflowers, medieval hamlets, and lonely hilltop monasteries. But most important of all is the region’s thriving wine industry, providing jobs and security to a traditionally poor part of Aragon.

Much praise is owed to major companies like Gonzalez Byass, responsible for investing millions in ultra-modern wineries, star winemakers, and wine tourism infrastructure. Whereas in other parts of Spain, it can be impossible to visit wineries. Enate, Bodegas Pirineos, and Viñas del Vero have set out to be the main attractions on Spanish wine tours. The region offers the gourmet tourist a complete package: cozy restaurants tucked away in romantic, historic villages offering excellent local cuisine (high on game, artisan cheeses, rich vegetable dishes, and homemade sausage chorizos); stunning modern wineries that open their doors to happy, wine-loving visitors; and beautiful landscapes and scenery. Bienvenidos!
