    "A classic blend of Macabeo, Xarel-lo and Parellada. Straw yellow in color with green highlights. Fresh and expressive primary aromas such as green apple and pear along with dried nuts and fresh baked bread notes. Fruity flavors combined with
    those from the ageing on lees. Fresh with medium structure."

    Food Pairing

    Good balance between the acidity and the fruit concentration. Serve alongside sautéed veggies, shrimp and shellfish.

  • Los Dos is Spanish for "both" or "the two" and produced by Bodegas Borsao. 

    Like two dancers coming together to create the perfect dance, Los Dos celebrates the intricate steps in the dance of winemaking. It starts with the vine finding perfect partnership with the soil. With Los Dos, the grapes are grown in estate vineyards in the renowned Campo de Borja region. This area is known for producing world-class Garnacha, where cool, dry breezes seem to animate the grapes on the vine and provide fresh flavors to the wines. The rhythm of the dance changes when the winemaker steps in— carefully harvesting and aging the grapes in stainless steel tanks resulting in fruit-forward, balanced wines.

    The winery is located in the D.O. of Campo de Borja in the Aragon Province of Northern Spain. Borsao originated as a brand in 1958 when the cooperative of Borja was founded.  In 2001, the cooperatives Ponzuelo and Tabuenca joined Borja, and Bodegas Borsao S.A. was established, bringing reform and a new sense of prestige to the winemaking practices of the group.  The mission of Bodegas Borsao is to establish their wines as the benchmark for premium Garnacha wines around the world.

    Location of Vineyard

    Campo de Borja D.O. is located in the Aragon region,  nestled against the Pyrenées Mountains. Bodegas  Borsao  stretches  over 2,260 hectares belonging to some 375 vine-growers. The hillsides  of the Moncayo shelter the vineyards located between 350 and  800 metres of altitude, regulating cold,  heat and moderating the  effects of the North-west 'Cierzo', or wind. This region is historically and geographically conducive to growing Garnacha, which makes up 60% of the vineyards. Other varietals include, Syrah, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, and minimal amounts of Mazuela, Macabeo, and Chardonnay.

    Winemaking Philosophy

    Los Dos's special cuvées are produced from 15- to 25-year-old vines. Aging occurs in stainless steel, which makes the wines immediately aromatic, full and friendly, with a refined length.  Winemaking techniques aim to preserve the characteristics of Garnacha from the region at all price points and quality levels. Harvest is carried out manually in key vineyards, and transported  in 20-kg cases.  The winery uses a significant 1 million frigories  cooling capacity to preserve the characteristics of  the fruit. Oak is used moderately to tame and add complexity to the wines, rather than impose its presence on them. The use of oak is adapted to the final style of the wine: different origins, both new and used wood and different sizes help to round up the expression of our wines.
