CALATAYUD WINE ROUTE
The Calatayud Wine Route is one of the highest altitude wine-growing areas in Spain, with centuries-old vineyards in extreme conditions. The old vines of Calatayud, with more than 50 years of age of the vineyard, define the unique character of this appellation. Two totally different styles mark this route: Mudejar and Cistercian. The Mudejar in the Calatayud region is very rich and highlights the Church, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001, of Tobed.
The Cistercian has its representation in the oasis of the Stone Monastery. Its historic garden full of lakes, waterfalls and waterfalls will surprise you.
SOMONTANO WINE ROUTE
In Somontano , some 4,000 hectares are dedicated to the cultivation of the vine and more than 30 wineries are deployed, with two native vines of the region: the moristel and the parraleta. On this route you will discover the beauty of the Aragonese Pre-Pyrenees and one of its most famous areas the Sierra de Guara and its canyons, which are the mecca of canyoning in Europe.

What can you do?
BARBASTRO CIUDAD DEL VINO
Accompanied by a guide, we take a tour that, based on this expressiveness, compares and accompanies the different tourist resources of Barbastro with the wine and gastronomy of Somontano.
A tour that takes place every Saturday morning from April 1 to November 1 from 10am to 2pm.
12 WINES 12 TASTINGS
12 tastings paired with local products such as “Radiquero Cheese”, “Elasun Jams”, “Patés de l´Ainsa” “Turrones Puyet”, “Chocolates Brescó”.
With each tasting, the visitor is thrilled with the combination of the wines with the flavors of the products, generating greater knowledge and interest in our territory and its gastronomic wealth. This experience takes place on the first Saturday of each month.
Tourists who have boarded the Wine Bus have had unique experiences as the Wine Bus manages to transmit an experience, an emotion, far from being a typical itinerary. Tasting a warehouse in a winery, entering a crypt closed to the public, having a tasting in the atrium of the Colegiata de Alquézar with views of the medieval town, having lunch in the middle of a vineyard … These are unique experiences that can only be lived getting on the Bus.
The Somontano Wine Bus itineraries are taken care of in detail. In each of the trips they are accompanied by a Sommelier specialized in the territory.
ENATE ESSENTIALS PAIRING TASTING
In a traditional way, every first Saturday of the month this essential tasting takes place by the winery’s technical team. The experience includes a guided visit to the most emblematic rooms of the winery, interpretation of the Contemporary Art Room and subsequent tasting in a complete enogastronomic day.
It is the only Wine Route with a totally family-oriented experience.
During the tour of the wineries, families are given a wine tourism guide prepared specifically for minors, along with cards that tell the history of the wine and its environment. The visit to the wineries concludes with a must tasting for the little ones.
