Viñedos y Crianzas del Alto Aragón (Enate) was founded in 1991 with the goal to produce high-quality wine in the Somontano appellation, and it harvested its first grapes in 1992. The winery also has a strong link to contemporary art: the building itself is an architectural piece of art, including the decoration of the inner spaces. The commitment and love of art is reflected in the wines’ labels, which are reproductions from contemporary artists’ paintings. Original design for ENATE by Alberto Carrera Blecua.
