Viñas del Vero takes its name from a river, the Vero, that flows through the Somontano region and is famous for its ravines, gorges and canyons. The Viñas del Vero winery was set up in Somontano at the end of 1986 through the acquisition of 550 hectares of land in Barbastro and other nearby villages. In 1987 the land began to be replanted with grape varieties traditionally grown in the region (Tempranillo, Moristel, Garnacha and Macabeo), along with others of different origins (Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir).
The success of Viñas del Vero cannot be understood without knowing a little about Somontano, a land of vineyards and wines. The region has been given this name because it is situated at the foot of the mountains, a few kilometres from the Sierra de Guara and the Salinas sierra, the first foothills of the Pyrenees, the most important mountain range in Spain and the geographic border with neighbouring France.
