The Covinca winery began in 1942. The vineyards are located in the center of the Aragon region, on the Campo de Cariņena plain, where over 150 growers cultivate almost 1500 hectares of vineyards. The extreme continental climate in this area gives the grapes their intense flavor. The fermentation is temperature controlled at 20 - 24 degrees C and takes place in stainless steel tanks for 7 days. The wine is then bled and malolactic fermentation carried out. Finally, the wine is racked off and a cold stabilization carried out for 15 days. This wine is unoaked.

The Cariņena D.O. is the oldest of Aragon and the second oldest in Spain. The countryside consists of a plain which is truncated at one end by the Sierra Iberica Hills which have deposited material over the years on the plain. As an inland landmass, the climate is continental, thus winters are cold and summers are hot. Rainfall is scarce and torrential and this explains the semi-arid appearance of the landscape.
