Small Sips #9: Vino de Pago

Innovative VINO DO PAGO is Spain’s most illustrious appellation, the highest classification that can be attained under Spanish wine law.

Introduced in 2003, it brought into the fold individual, pioneering, high-end estates whose consistently-brilliant wines had until then fallen outside the regular appellation system.

In short, the particular producer is the appellation, an amazing situation without parallel elsewhere in the wine world. Pago is an exclusive club, with just 14 wineries in all of Spain entitled to the designation. Two of the key requirements for a Pago are that its terruño (terroir) be unique, and that its wines be crafted entirely on site – true estate wines.
