Wines being offered:

2011 Borsao Blanco, Viura
Campo de Borja, Spain
Located in the town of Borja in the province of Zaragoza, in the delta between the Ebro River and the Moncayo mountain range, this location lends a citrusy finish with hints of gentle vanillia from the 3 months in French barrique

2011 Borsao Tres Picos Garnacha
Campo de Borja, Spain
Old-Vine Garnacha vineyards cling to the rugged terrain on the slopes of the famous Moncayo Mountain and this struggle produces a flamboyant bouquet that exudes blackberry, violet, lavender, and delivers a bonus smokiness that is impressively intense

2010 Alto Moncayo Veraton
Campo de Borja, Spain
Vines that have been planted between 1910 and 1967 in the "truth" vineyard exude black cheery, cassis, cinnamon and smoke that is plush with balanced tannin and pushes its pairing to new heights

2010 Alto Moncayo Garnacha
Campo de Borja, Spain
This is the greatest representation of what the D.O. Campo de Borja, located just at the feet of the Grand Sierra Cantabria mountain range of Rioja, can produce.  An opulent effort is all about giving pleasure to the pallet and carrying the cuisine on its strong back up to the peak of its taste

2011 Jorge Ordonez "Victoria" Moscatel (raisined) Malaga, Spain
An alluring perfume of jasmine and honey, with flavors of liquid apricot and pear is delivered by this raisened Moscatel from the southern Sierra Malaga region along the coast of the sea.  

About Garnacha
Borsao is the benchmark for premium Spanish Garnacha. Garnacha has been one of the greatest preservers of this variety. Garnacha is living a huge revival world-wide thanks to its fruit-driven character, soft tannins and pleasant mouth feel, that make it perfect to match a great variety of meals. It originated in Aragón, where Borja is located and it owes its development throughout Europe to the strength of the Kingdom of Aragón, whose expansion made Garnacha be well established in the Rhône Valley in the 19th century, Italy and Sardinia.
BORSAO TINTO SELECCION 2011. 90 points. “Possibly the single greatest dry red wine value in the world, this is an unbelievable wine”.
Robert Parker´s Wine Advocate. October 2012. Issue#203.

The 2010 Borsao Garnacha Tres Picos from Campo de Borja, Spain, was named the 2012 Sommelier’s Choice by Sommelier Journal following an extensive nominating and blind-tasting process".
David Vogels from Sommelier Journal

“On the Top 100 wineries of the world”.
