Pago de Carraovejas
Pago de Carraovejas is one of the oldest family-owned wineries in Ribera
The story of Pago de Carraovejas began in the 1970s, founded by Jose María Ruiz; it is one of the oldest family-owned wineries in Ribera. This vineyard spans 568 acres and is internationally known as one of the most prestigious wineries in Spain. Located on a steep slope perpendicular to the Duero River and parallel to the Duratón.
The vineyard is situated 850m above sea level where three different grape varieties are cultivated: Tinto Fino (Tempranillo), Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. We work with two traditional viticulture techniques both adapted to the orography of the land defined as valley viticulture in the central planes of the valley and mountain viticulture in those plots whose slopes are greater than 20% or terraced.
The primary reason for the success and personality of Pago de Carraovejas wines is based in the raw material, its careful selection and exhaustive control throughout the entire ripening process.
We strive to give the utmost respect to our surroundings and, as such, we implement a sustainable viticulture model commonly known in Spain as ́ ́integrated production ́ ́
