Over 150 small vineyard sites surrounding the town of Munébrega. All vineyards are within the limits of D.O. Calatayud. 100% Garnacha de Aragón, the oldest clone of Garnacha in the world.

Traditional dry farmed viticulture. Practicing organic gobelet trained vines. In challenging years, the winery sprays with copper sulfate once per growing season. Soils from the Miocene rich in iron, and as they move from highest to lowest altitude, they include red slate, gravel, and limestone & clay loam respectively. There is also an important component of sand.
An authentic wine produced from the original Garnacha, which was first cultivated in Aragón in the 7th Century, and spread around Europe by the Medieval Kingdom of Aragón. Calatayud produces a unique expression of Garnacha due to its geographic and climactic conditions. As Spain's highest altitude region for the production of Garnacha, the temperature swings are radical - up to 60°F in the summer. This produces wines with deep color and character, as well as lively acidity. Breca El Nacido is Bodegas Breca's freshest and most fluid interpretation of the old mountain vineyards of Calatayud.
