About This Wine

The Moncayo is one of the most popular mountain destinations in Spain.

At nearly 7,800 feet, it’s the highest mountain in the Iberian range, and accommodates diverse landscapes — from glacier remains at the summit to deep forests of beech, oak, pine and juniper trees on its slopes to vineyards at some of its lower elevations.

Among the grape varieties grown in the Moncayo foothills is Grenache, which is blended with Syrah, Mourvedre and sometimes Cinsault to produce France’s cherished Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Cotes-du-Rhone cuvees. In Spain, which is believed to be its homeland, it’s known as Garnacha, where it’s typically made into 100-percent varietal wines.

The 2016 El Duende Garnacha was crafted from grapes grown in the Moncayo foothills. It’s a fruitful and spicy wine with supple tannins that lead to an appealing finish. For a true multi-cultural culinary experience, try it alongside barbecued ribs with Chinese-five-spice sauce.
