Pago de Carraovejas de Vinos The Spanish Wine Specialist in London & the UK

Pago de Carraovejas

Pago de Carraovejas is one of the most well-regarded winery estates in Spain, with a reputation of producing consistently fine wines in the Ribera del Duero D.O. The project started in 1987, when José María Ruiz (Chef and owner of acclaimed restaurant in Segovia “José María”) leads the project with a clear vision in mind: create a top quality wine, which could be enjoyed by his restaurant guests and wine lovers. The fact that José María has spent its professional in the restaurant business is, we believe, an important factor to understand the wines at Pago de Carraovejas, which are well known for its versatility and great matching with different types of food.

The Pago de Carraovejas estate (“Pago” is a Spanish word for Estate) counts nowadays with 160 hectares of south-southeast facing vineyards, at an elevation of 850 meters above sea level. They plant mostly Tempranillo (or Tinta del País), but also have Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vines. The hillsides of the Pago de Carraovejas receive the benefits of abundant sunshine while at the same time being protected from cold north winds and the dangerous spring frosts. Moreover, the estate benefits from a Continental climate, with frequent breezes from the west that keep grapes healthy. The dew and low early day temperatures in the morning and the pronounced thermal oscillations alleviate summer heat, guaranteeing that their wines have a particular touch lending them shape and colour

The winery is a modern building equipped with latest technology to preserve and enhance natural winemaking processes, using gravity to preserve the original characteristics of the grapes from their own Estate. Moreover, the views of the iconic “Castillo de Peñafiel” (a castle from the 10th century located in the town of Peñafiel, just minutes away from Carraovejas) and surrounding fields from the Estate are charming, making a visit to this top Spanish winery even more appealing.
