The “recent” history of wine at our Pago Casa Gran estate began at least 300 years ago. We have preserved an ancient wine cellar from those times in the Casa Benasal building. Manuela Galbis, the founder’s mother, reinitiated wine production at Pago Casa Gran during the 1960’s.
However, wine remnants dating back to the 4th century B.C. have also been found just a short distance from our winery, in the ruins of an Iberian town located atop the mountain that borders our estate.
At Pago Casa Gran we see ourselves as true artisans. For us, this means we are fully committed to two critical objectives: produce the highest quality in our wines, and continually improve our estate. These objectives are linked, since our wines are the expression of this privileged land and its history. Our entire production model is governed by strict organic standards, as recognized by European certification since 2006 and the highest level of Delinat organic standards since 2009.
Following an intensive study, all our production activities have been thoroughly defined according to our eco-friendly philosophy and objectives. The uncompromising guidelines established by the Delinat Institute of Switzerland provide an important foundation for this undertaking. The Delinat system ensures we are on the cutting edge of organic wine production within a sustainable ecosystem, and rejects any form of “industrialized environmentalism” or other cultural practices that take away from biodiversity.
Our team is a small and extremely dedicated group of people who are passionate about what we are trying to accomplish together. Each brings substantial knowledge of viticulture and winemaking; but something more as well. As we were all raised in the Les Alcusses valley area, who could be in a better position to understand how everything works in our unique viticultural land?
