ABOUT CAMPO DE BORJA
Campo de Borja is a DO wine zone since 1980 in Aragon, northern Spain. It is centered on Borja, a small town laden with history. The Borgia family, who came to prominence in Italy during the Renaissance and produced two Popes, were of Borjan origin. Campo de Borja's soil near Ainzón is made up of stones and iron-rich clay. The climate is continental, and the vineyards elevation can easily surpase 1,500 feet. Campo de Borja is the best selling Spanish appellation in the US after Rioja, a clear indication of the region's quality and appeal to American consumers.
