Bodegas y Viñedos Costers del Priorat

Costers del Priorat

The Bodega

After reaching the cellar, the grape clusters are manually selected and each vineyard is vinified separately in small tanks. In the region, this is called ‘Clos’, that is, wine obtained from the grape clusters from a single vineyard.

The secret in the production of great wines like Pissarres and Clos Cypres is not only in the separate vinification of each vineyard, but also in the low overall vine production.

Owing to the scarce rainfall and quite infertile lands, small and concentrated grape clusters are produced with a high level of alcohol, mature and well-formed tannins that, along with the mineral tastes provided by the slate soil, shape one of the best wines for aging in oak.

With a minimum aging time of 18 months in French oak barrels, the wine of Costers del Priorat reach maturity and are bottled to then await the last step, refinement in bottle.

 
 

Bodegas Ayuso

Bodegas Ayuso

Villarrobledo, 1947: a family tradition is born

When, in 1947, Fermín Ayuso Roig decided to found his own winery in Villarrobledo, an ideal location due to its climate and soil, he began a family tradition in vine-growing and wine-making that has made Bodegas Ayuso a reference of the highest quality and solidity in the market.

In 1961, the winery began the commercialization of bottled wine after setting up cellars with Bordeaux-type oak barrels, which would become the first ageing facility in the region.

The first Reserve in La Mancha

With the 1965 harvest, the Estola brand was launched, the flagship of the winery and the first Reserve wine in La Mancha, which very soon would attract the attention of the specialist critics and personalities.

The barrels of that time bear testimony to the visit to the winery, in 1973, of the Papal Nuncio and the brand was mentioned in the novel "La Rosa de Alejandría" ("Alexandria’s Rose") by Vázquez Montalbán.

Since then, a continuous process of technical improvements and perfecting of the facilities has given rise to a company which, without ever abandoning the seal and style of a family tradition, enjoys a solid reputation and occupies positions of leadership in the national and international markets.

 

Bodegas Artajona

Bodegas Paternina

Situated in the area of Artajona, an ideal location for the cultivation of vines because of its temperate climate characterised by the day and night time temperature differences which encourage a balanced maturation of the grapes, contributing to a greater permanence and complexity of the aromatic components.

The soil in the vineyards is largely calcareous clay with variations in the physical and chemical properties giving the grapes their own very particular personality.

Wine comes from the soil and therein lies the importance of the care and attention of the vineyards: attentiveness given with the aim of obtaining aromatic suggestive wines to delight the most demanding palates.

Bodegas Artajona was founded in 1957, when the Pérez de Ciriza family moved from their home town, Artajona, to Pamplona and inaugurated their first winery.

From that moment, quality and service were the foundations on which the family business project was built.

In 2002, now firmly consolidated in the regional market, Bodegas Artajona inaugurated modern facilities covering over 3,000 m2 and the firm entered upon its expansion into new markets. Its goal was clear: to satisfy the most demanding palates with top-quality wines. The culmination of these efforts are the wines we present here. They are exquisite wines, painstakingly selected and nurtured in our Bodega, combining the most modern production processes with the experience and know-how accumulated through the years.
