Located in the heart of the Cariñena Denomination of Origin, one of the historical and emerging areas of national viticulture, Bodegas Care was born as an exclusive, advanced and committed wine business.
The winery and the creation of our wines were conceived as a complete and innovative process in which each and every one of the elements is meticulously contrasted. From the selection of the vineyard, where sourcing the best quality grapes is our main goal, to the infrastructure of the different production, control and aging areas.
Our wine business responds to a fusion criterion between the tradition of one of the most deeply-rooted wine regions in Spain and the respect to the vine and a wine towards new lifestyles around the world.
This northeastern Spanish town is believed to be the origin of the grape with the same name. However, Carinena (in French, known as Carignan) has all but been abandoned in favor of Garnacha, which is better suited for its arid climate. The region of Carinena also produces fine examples of whites based on Garnacha Blanca, Macabeo, Parellada and others.
With bold fruit flavors and accents of sweet spice, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre form the base of the classic Rhône Red Blend, while Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise often come in to play. Though they originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley, with some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in other countries. Somm Secret—Putting their own local spin on the Rhône Red Blend, those from Priorat often include Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.
