Located in Spain’s northeast province of Zaragoza, 200 miles to the west of Barcelona, DO Campo de Borja is physically a continuation of southern Navarra, south-west of the River Ebro. It is an area rich in winemaking history which, like several other lesser known DO regions in Spain, has weathered serious hardships but is now poised to emerge as a region producing quality Spanish wines. The rugged, mountainous area is bordered by the snow-capped mountains of the Sierra del Moncayo, and the vineyard sites that line these are situated between 350 and 700m in altitude. This position encourages the growth of ripe grapes in a dry environment free from rot and pests. It is also an area marked by an extreme continental climate, with widely contrasting day/night temperatures and scarce rainfall at below 400mm per year. This dynamic is critical for developing ripe grape skins with aromatic flavour, complexity and structure. Soils are poor, composed of brown, limey, calcareous, sandy limestone that is well-drained and porous (allowing air access to the vine’s rootstocks), and rich in organic matter and nutrients. The soils near the Moncayo range contain more clay, ferrous minerals and stones. 75% of DO Campo de Borja red wine production is made from Garnacha.

Founded in 1956, Bodegas Santo Cristo is now a modern winery owning about 1200 hectares of vineyards of autochthonous Garnacha, Tempranillo, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mazuelo and Macabeo. Prime vineyards cover terraces along the River Huecha and the Plasencia Plateau, in an area designated as the Somontano de Moncayo. Significant recent investment in vineyard management and new technology has provided Bodegas Santo Cristo with the necessary equipment and modern installations, with over 780 Bordeaux casks of American oak, to produce excellent quality, modern, stylish wines which are becoming highly regarded in international markets.
