Calatayud, Spain
Calatayud is a North-Eastern region of Spain with a continental climate. Most of the vineyards planted here are for red grapes, with the predominant being Grenache. The soil type is stoney, loose, very poor in nutrients and with a high lime content. The vines in this region have to work their way deep into the fractured soils to find the water and nutrients they need.
