Considered by many as the most magical place in all of the Empordà, Mas Sorrer is a wonderful locale in Costa Brava that captures the vitality and joy of the Spanish way of life through a vibrant expression of the traditional Spanish varieties Tempranillo and Garnacha. The Cariñena Denominación de Origen is situated at 56 km south east of Zaragoza, in Aragón, in the Iberian mountains between the Campo de Cariñena Valley and the Ebro River. The Denominación covers 50.000 hectares and has a long viticulture tradition with a wealthy culture heritage from the mudejar period.
Generally the climate is arid in Cariñena, with an annual rainfall of 350 mm. The summers are dry and sunny, the winters are cold and the area often feels the effects of “the Cierzo” wind, which contributes to the dryness of the climate. The soils are poor, stony and made up of ochre-coloured limestone. The vineyards are found at an altitude of between 400 and 800 m.
