Located in the northeast of the country, Cariñena is the largest of the four DOs in the greater region of Aragón. Despite being the geographic origin and namesake of the Cariñena, or Carignan, variety—and its denomination—Cariñena it is now dominated by the Garnacha grape, which is also believed to have originated in the area. The region possesses the most old-vine plantings of Garnacha and Cariñena in Spain, including some that are around 100 years old.
