This winery’s origins go back to 1958, the year the Cooperative of Borja was founded. This is where Borsao originated as a brand. Some years later, the co-operatives of Pozuelo and Tabuenca joined Borja, adding their resources and –most importantly- their vineyards. This happened in the year 2001, and the new company was called Bodegas Borsao S.A. Its 700 grower members became shareholders and a management team was appointed to shape the foundations of the winery: starting with the grape sourcing scheme and following with a refurbishment of the winemaking facilities. Nowadays this modern winery has 375 winegrowers.
Borsao is now the benchmark for premium Spanish Garnacha. They have been one of the greatest preservers of this variety. They believe that it is specially suited to the region of Campo de Borja, Aragon where it originated. Campo de Borja is considered the ‘Empire of Garnacha’ – the most prevalent grape in the region, which just thrives here. Borsao have years of experience crafting ripe and appealing wines, such as this, from the variety.
Borgia Garnacha has bright plum and berry fruit aromas. The palate is rich and welcoming with ripe cassis and bramble characters and soft, approachable tannins on the finish. This is a great value, quaffable wine.
