At the end of 2012, the Pagos del Moncayo family was enriched with the incorporation of Louis Geirnaerdt and Eugenie Van Ekeris, bringing their extensive experience in the sector and providing the company with new tools for marketing and internationalisation.
Our winery is located at the foot of the Sierra del Moncayo, in the heart of the Iberian mountain range as it passes through Aragon. Given the proximity to Vera del Moncayo and its privileged location in the province of Zaragoza, the beauty and richness of the environment in which we produce our wines are incomparable.
Pagos del Moncayo is the result of a family dream: to transmit through our wines all the passion and experience resulting from centuries of tradition in the cultivation of Garnacha grapes in the lands of Campo de Borja.
In 2013 we took part, in collaboration with Axial Vinos, in the European Eco-Innovation Project ‘ECO-PROWINE’, which aims to implement initiatives to reduce the environmental impact of winemaking. As part of the project, we implemented the Life Cycle Analysis tool, acting on each of the production phases of our wines. This ECO-ETIQUET certifies that our winery’s emission levels are well below the European average.
Pagos del Moncayo has a manual cultivation and a biological control of the vineyard.
We also use solar energy. Our winery is not connected to the electricity grid; we use solar panels.
The winemaking process is carried out in open vats, which allows us to control the process with our own hands and carry out the traditional treading of the grapes.
The air conditioning is natural. Thanks to the influence of the Moncayo air, the winery does not need artificial air conditioning systems.
