Characteristics of Atteca

Atteca is a red wine from Calatayud made by Ateca Bodegas, a winery that was founded in 2005 in the town of Ateca, a few kilometres from Calatayud. This winery belongs to the Orowines group, a very powerful group in this country.

This wine is a varietal Grenache (100%) from vine plots of the Grenache grape variety planted on slate soils in the higher parts of this area. In terms of processing, grape selection and manual collection is carried out when the grapes are mature.

    Designation of Origin D.O. Calatayud

    Winery Ateca

    The history and legendary Camino de Santiago to Navarra, with the resulting French and Central European cultural influence in the area, influenced in the Middle Ages the tradition of unique wines, centred on the use of the Garnacha Tinta grape variety. The modernisation of wineries, the careful choice of the vineyards, the incorporation of noble varieties, and the commitment of winemakers seeking more flavour instead of alcohol, has led to a new generation of Calatayud wines, which are fine, elegant and very personal.
