Spain, Campo de Borja
Bodegas Aragonesas is a huge, marvelous estate. I remember when I was there. It was still the beginning of the day, we found ourselves in the middle of the vines on one of the highest plots (600m) overlooking the vineyard which was slowly beginning to warm up, caressed by the soft orange rays of the sun. The grapes were beautiful and firm, the harvest period was approaching. This is where I first heard about Fagus, this wine made 100% from red Grenache and after hard and meticulous work.
To understand the Fagus, what you have to do is imagine this moment of autumn or even winter, a veil of red and yellow leaves covers the trees and the ground, a down of beautiful powdery and welcoming snow, we are in a comfortable and warm home with the person we love more than anything, the fireplace is perhaps even crackling, we are happy and we taste some hot chestnuts bought recently from this merchant who cheerfully shouted "hot my chestnuts, hot, taste my chestnuts!". Well the wine that we open will be the Fagus. At this moment, we will have the impression of being able to seize the stars, achieve perfection a little more with each sip...

(may contain sulphites, eggs, milk, fish)
Red and white wine usually contain sulphites, but there are sulphur-free wines available. Many wines use eggs, milk or fish at the fining stage of production. The ingredient list will not include these allergens because even though the wine has come into contact with these ingredients, they are removed from the final product.
Although Bodegas Aragonesas was founded in 1984, the cultivation of vines - in particular Grenache - dates back to 1145 and the Cistercian monks of the monastery of Veruela, located a short distance from Fuendejalón and Magallón.
Their ancestors inherited this precious and historical heritage and they, the following generations, enriched it to reach its full potential.
They express their love for Grenache on the land and in the cellar. They know it's an essential part of their heritage and they do their best to continuously improve their growing and winemaking methods.
Their brands, Fagus in particular, are the jewels of their cellar. They enjoy an international reputation that has earned them numerous awards and accolades.
Their 3,700 hectares of vines give them a symphony of colors. The red and stony soil offers the best environment for their main grape varieties: Garnacha, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Mazuela, Chardonnay, Macabeo and Muscat.
These vigorous and robust vineyards, some of which are over 100 years old, are firmly planted in unrivaled land which, combined with a harsh climate, gives the grapes their special quality and personality.
