Bodegas Sierra de Guara in collaboration with wine maker Manuel Cristobal started this interesting project in 2005. Monte La Sarda is from the obscure area of Bajo Aragon (Lower Aragon), about 125 miles west of Barcelona. The grapes are cultivated at an altitude of 500 to 600 meters, 95% sunny days and 350-400 mm of rainfall. Low humidity and cooling inland winds makes it ideal for the Garnacha vine to grow in these chalky clay soils. The vines used for the wine Monte la Sarda are 50 years old.
