Bodegas Ateca is one of six wineries belonging to the Gil Family Estates. The winery is well-known for its terroir-driven orientation and its use of indigenous grape varieties.
The Bodega Ateca is located on the hillside of the Ateca mountains, in the northern Spanish province of Aragón. The winery owns 55 hectares of vineyards spread out through small plots in the surrounding towns. This is a very dry region of Span with an extreme climate and great temperature changes between days and nights. This microclimate is ideal for grape cultivation.
The wines from Bodega Ateca winery are all crafted from Grenache grapes, the native grape variety of this region. The grapevines are between 40 and 100 years old and they are located in slate soils at an altitude between 750 – 1000 meters above sea level. These grapevines have an average yield of 1500kg per hectare. These naturally concentrated grapes have an exceptional quality that brings a particular richness, acidity and minerality to the wines, giving them a great aging potential.
