"Lastly, the 2012 Berola is a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in French and American small oak barrels for ten months, and an additional 14 months in bottle prior to release. Loads of almost floral notes jump from the glass of this fragrant, deep ruby/purple wine. It is medium to full-bodied, showing good spice box, licorice, blackcurrants and black cherries. It is a sexy, seductive, luscious wine that should drink well for another 2-4 years."

"Founded in 1958, this has been one of Jorge Ordoñez' most consistently reliable producers of absolutely astonishing values from the province of Zaragoza. The appellation is Campo de Borja and this winery owns a whopping 3,706 acres of vineyards, of which 3,125 are planted to Grenache! The poor soils are dominated by the chalkiness, as this is close to the Moncayo mountain range that is nearly pure chalk. It is a continental climate and the vines are relatively young, having been planted 1981-1986. The winemaking is impressive and the values that emerge from here are mind-boggling."~Robert Parker

Bodegas Borsao

View all from Bodegas Borsao
Our origins go back to 1958, the year the Cooperative of Borja was founded. This is where Borsao originated as a brand. Some years later, the co-operatives of Pozuelo and Tabuenca joined Borja, adding their resources and –most importantly- their vineyards.

This happened in the year 2001, and the new company was called Bodegas Borsao S.A., established as a limited company. Its 620 members became shareholders and a management team was appointed to shake the foundations of the winery: starting with the grape sourcing scheme and following with a refurbishment of the winemaking facilities.

Experience, resources and means combined with the potential of the vineyards of the 3 wine cellars, enabling the development of a new work philosophy that has given Borsao international recognition and prestige.
