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 grapes come from their Guadajira vineyard. The grapes were harvested at night and transported in boxes of 20 kg. After sorting table, selected grapes crushed and fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Only around 20000 bottles of this fine wine is produced.
