This wine region is divided into sub-regions along the Ebro River, one of the largest in Spain. At the north of the river is found the Somontano D.O , and three smaller regions D.O located further south (Catalayud, Carinena and Campo de Borja). Edged by mountains, the landscape varies from green hills (in between), to snow capped mountains (in the north) and parched plains (in the south). High temperatures in summer, very low during winter, with strong altitude influences on the north and low rainfalls are the hallmarks of Aragon's continental climate. Such differences make Aragon's wines extremely versatile in style. Aragon's wine are mainly based on Garnacha, Carinena and Tempranillo grapes.
