I’ve been utterly fascinated with Spain’s Vino de Pago designation since I first heard about it just over 12 years ago, and what’s not to love?; this high-end designation was established in 2003 to further the production of unique Spanish wines through a focus upon single vineyards or wine estates. So right up my alley then.

Chozas Carrascal are currently one of only 17 Vino de Pago in all of Spain, and their wines from Valencia are quite shockingly contemporary and utterly delicious at the same moment; that’s quite a feat in my book.

We spoke to the winery’s Fernando Sastre about the Vino de Pago label, and how it applies to the Chozas Carrascal estate.
