Vinification Details

  • The grapes are handpicked and carefully selected. Only the best grapes are used to make the Reserva wines. After fermentation at a controlled temperature of 26 - 29C for 10 to 12 days, the wine is macerated with the skins for 12 days to ensure that the wine acquires its characteristic colour and polished tannins. The wine is then aged for 18 months in new American oak barrels before resting quietly in bottles to ensure complete maturity.

History

  • Pagos del Rey occupies a privileged setting on the right bank of the Ebro river in the foothills of Rioja Alavesa in the town of Fuenmayor, where wine-making and tradition form the very heart of the Rioja Denominacion de Origen Califcada. Work on the Pagos del Rey winery in La Rioja began in 2004, with the first vintage in 2006 and completion of the buildings in 2008. The jewel in its crown is its ageing house, with room for 20,000 American and French oak barrels.

Regional Information

  • All over Spain wine is an important part of the culture, but in La Rioja the people live and breathe wine at every turn. It is the most famous wine producing region in Spain and produces some of its most glorious wines. The production of red wines accounts for around 95% of the total, with notable white and rose wines also being produced. The great Tempranillo grape dominates in the vineyard, producing wines that are both suitable for drinking when young, and those that are destined for prolonged ageing.
