Pagos de Viña Real

Pagos de Viña Real is made from our 40-year old vineyard. The vineyard, called La Romera, spans almost 2 hectares in the Labastida municipality. The plot has clay soil with pebbles on the surface. The vineyard lies on the slopes of Mount Toloño, protected from the north winds and exposed to the south. Given its proximity to the mountains, the location is warm and bright during the day in the months of August and September, but temperatures drop at night, leading to a slower maturation, which preserves the grape’s natural acidity.

The grapes are selected at the vineyard and collected in 20-kg boxes. A further selection process is carried out at the winery. The semi-crushed grapes are fermented using indigenous yeasts in small tanks at a controlled temperature of around 30ºC and undergo daily pigeage.

The variety is 100% Tempranillo. After fermentation, the grapes undergo heat maceration for several. Tastings determine when the wine is run off. The wine then passes on to the malolactic fermentation stage in 300-litre French oak barrels, where it remains with periodic batonnage until it is clarified and bottled. The wine is barrel-aged for 12 months.

“Pagos de Viña Real came about following the 2001 harvest, thanks to the exceptional condition of the vineyard. We decided that this would be the first wine to be produced at our new Viña Real winery, located in Laguardia, Rioja Alavesa”
DESCUBRE MÁS Viña Real Rosado “Viña Real red wine was traditionally produced using viura grapes for freshness and acidity. We have followed the same philosophy with this rosé in our search for a fresh and delicate wine. The wine stands out for its clean aromatics and balance in the mouth”
