Other recent vintages:  2017  

One of only 17 estates (and one of only 3 organic estates) with the Pago designation, Pago de los Balagueses is a special place. The 17 hectare vineyard is surrounded by national forest, and ever since winemaker Andrés Valiente and his son Rodolfo decide to plant native varieties and farm them organically in the mountains above the Valencian coast 25 years ago this vineyard has produced exceptional wine with a distinct and nuanced flavour.
