Welcome to Somontano Wine Region
Somontano is Aragón's most prestigious wine-growing region. Centred on the town of Barbastro, the Somontano DO (Denominación de Origen) has more than 30 wineries producing reds, whites and rosés from 15 different local and other grape varieties. Nearly all the wineries are in the countryside outside the town, which isn't a particularly pretty place, although the older part around the late-Gothic cathedral and the Paseo del Coso boulevard is pleasant enough. More charming Alquézar, 26km northwest of Barbastro, can also be used as a base for winery visits.
