Pago de Fuente Elvira: a ‘vineyard of vineyards’ steeped in history

Sometimes when we go to a shop or restaurant and choose a bottle of wine, we are unaware of the history of the winery or the family behind it, or of the fact that this history, one that goes back many generations, is still alive in its vines today.

Pago de Fuente Elvira started with a small piece of land that Pedro Escudero named ‘El Grande’ (‘The Big One’); the reason for the name is clear; of all his plots, it was the largest despite having an area of only 5 hectares. 
In turn, this portion of terroir was made up of three small plots, ‘El Cuadro’, ‘El Viejo’ and ‘El Hoyo’. The first two, the oldest ones, were the first to see the Verdejo grape grow at Pago de Fuente Elvira; the third was younger, and in rainy years, its lower part tended to accumulate water, hence the name ‘El Hoyo’ (‘The Hole’).

Over time, Pedro purchased and added plots adjacent to the ones he owned, building on that terroir a future in the best location, now covered with vines of great value.
He added ‘Cayo’, ‘La Lobera’, ‘Malaga’, ‘El Pozo’, ‘Ezequiel’, ‘Ampudia’, ‘Augusto’, ‘Gonzalo’, ‘Rivera’, ‘Filo’, ‘Julio’ and ‘Serapio’. Today, these plots make up what is Pago de Fuente Elvira, the name of the place where they are located.

We manage and maintain all our plots with the names of their previous owners or the ‘nicknames’ by which they were already known before they joined our family.
We believe that maintaining each one’s history through its name is part of the essence of this place.
These estates have been worked by many families, with vineyards and other crops, and today, our family is the one that has shaped this great vineyard of vineyards on a unique terroir full of little pieces of history of the people of this place.
