The vineyard

Conceived by the renowned Australian viticulture professor, Dr. Richard Smart.
It has an area of ​​50 hectares located at an altitude of 850 m, in the Montes de Toledo region.
The vineyard is made up of poor, acidic and highly evolved soils, the result of the erosion of the oldest mountains in the Iberian Peninsula, with a continental climate, with hot and dry summers and cold and humid winters (622 mm of precipitation). With all these conditions we can talk about mountain wines.
We find six different varieties of grapes of French origin perfectly adapted to the climate, soil and altitude conditions of the farm: the white Viognier and the red Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Petit verdot and Cabernet franc.
In 2018, 3 national varieties were added, all of them red: Garnacha, Cariñena and Monastrell.

The pay

Being aware of the unique and exceptional character of the Vallegarcia vineyard, work was done to declare it Pago.
In 2019 with recognition as a Protected Designation of Origin.
El Pago is part of one of the best samples of Mediterranean Forest in the world, in a unique natural area, which preserves flora and fauna of great ecological value and landscapes of nature that are still intact.

The future

D. Carlos and Felipe Cortina Lapique, second generation of Vallegarcia. addresses its management from its recognized business experience and its future vision.
They augur a new stage for the winery, with more ambitious projects of growth and expansion without forgetting the principles that founded this project: Making wines from the highest quality.
