Martinez Payva has been making wines since 1876 in Badajoz, Extremadura. The wines are made from estate grown grapes only. They grow Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha, Graciano, Merlot and Syrah for reds and Macabeo, Cayetana, Chardonnay and Muscatel for the whites. The state of the art new winery was constructed 10 years ago.
The native Cayetana grapes are located in their vineyard “Pay Riola” vineyard with over 40 years of planting and clay loam soil with a high percentage in Cali. The grapes are harvested on September 20 in boxes of 20 Kg. They are transported and in an isothermal form, for later selection table. The grapes underwent a cold maceration process to extract aromas rooted to the skin. After fermentation for 45 days, the wines was in direct contact with lees for some time.
