La filoxera in Aragón
During the 1870s, a plague of phylloxera occurred in the main Spanish wine-growing areas. Phylloxera entered the Iberian Peninsula through three sources: Porto, Malaga and Gerona.
The most rapid expansion of phylloxera occurred between 1896 and 1903, since it infected practically all the wine-growing regions of the Ebro valley (Navarra, La Rioja, Álava and Zaragoza).
This explains why the plague caused the vine to be uprooted and attempts were made to replant again with a European pattern, although the Garnacha Negra in Aragon, the most common species in the region, was almost completely lost.
