More info

Pago Calzadilla is a small, family-run estate producing a limited quantity of highly expressive wines from the province of Cuenca. Located just outside the town of Huete, the 20 hectares of vines overlook the picturesque river valley of Río Mayor. The artisanal winery was built in 1980, which coincided with the planting of the vineyard with red varieties of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Cabernet-Sauvignon. Syrah was added later. The vineyard is manually cultivated and the wines are made with minimal intervention in the gravity-fed winery. Cultivated with passion, experience and expertise the wines are intense and elegant expressions of this unique site.

The vines are grown in a unique site located in the Rio Mayor Valley at an altitude of 1,000 metres. The quality grapes come from specific plots on the La Pájara hill, which were planted in 1992. The soils are calcareous and the vineyard benefits from a distinct microclimate, with frequent mists and winds that protect the vines from spring frosts and disease. The vines are cultivated using organic preparations such as compost fertilisers from crop residue, cinnamon and sulphur to prevent disease. The use of aromatic cover crops between the vines increases the biodiversity and improves the soil quality.
