BODEGA PAGOS DEL MONCAYO: The people of Pagos de Moncayo take great pride in the centuries of experience and tradition they owe to the cultivation of Garnacha.
All stages of viticulture and vinification are carried out by hand maximising the expressiveness and personality of the final wines which remain totally true to their “terroir”. Its recovery of traditional elaboration triggered this familiar winery to the international hot spot of suatinability thanks to having been recognized as the EU referent in sustainable wine elaboration by the Eropean Commisssion project Eco-Prowine. The ECO-LABEL certifies that Pagos del Moncayo’ CO2 emissions are well below the European average. This is the proof of how sustainable our wines are.
Although Bodegas Pagos de Moncayo is a young Bodega, it works only with vines in excess of 80 years old. These vines and vineyards are family owned by father and son for many, many years; the Aibar family. In addition to this these are the people present who have a vast experience in the area of wine production. This fusion between people, time and very old vines leads the final taster to wines of exceptional quality!
Four wines have been born from these lands and this philosophy. In addition to the Garnacha there is the Syrah grape, used as a wonderful complement. These wines begin in the following vineyard sites: La Corona, La Loma, Los Blanquizales and La Marga. By elaborating wines with as little physical contact to the grapes they reach maturity through a process of natural stabilization which takes place over the passage of time. Only in this way are you sure to taste all the natural elements of the wine while also reducing the risk and loss of its true composition.
DO CAMPO DE BORJA: Pagos del Moncayo winery is located at the foothills of the Sierra del Moncayo, in the heart of the Iberian mountain range as one passes through Aragon. Vineyards: 7 ha (17 acres) of family-owned Garnacha and Syrah vineyards located between 350-700 m (1200-2300 ft). Despite being a foreign variety, the Syrah grape has adapted perfectly to our lands and is a perfect complement to the autochthonous Grenache grapes.
