When Mr. Fermn Ayuso Roig decided to start his own winery in Villarrobledo, an ideal location due to its climate and property, he began a family tradition in vine cultivation and wine production that has made Bodegas Ayuso a market benchmark of maximum quality and seriousness.
After fitting out cellars with Bordeaux-style oak barrels, the winery began selling bottled wine in 1961, resulting in the region’s first aging warehouse.
Finca los Azares: the best of our land
Finca Los Azares is the product of a long-term delusion and family effort. A meticulously planned land where we have attended to all of the requisite details in order to produce the best wine.
They chieve a crop without low areas (prone to frost) or streams on a 350-hectare plot near Villarrobledo, so rainwater does not run and irrigation is evenly distributed.
A microclimate for each variety
Following various analyses of the various plots, the rootstock and most suitable variety were chosen, and different microclimates adapted to the various varieties were created using conduction methods and pruning systems. On the plantation, planting density is high in order to achieve a low yield per vine.
To prevent splashing and to obtain the best aeration and stable and quality fruits, the cultivation is done on a high trellis. They also track humidity and pH in real time to make any required adjustments. They research the best orientation for different varieties and hours of sunlight, as well as water stressing the vines to regulate yield and aromatic concentration.
The First Reserve of La Mancha
The 1965 vintage saw the launch of the Estola brand, the flagship of the winery and the first La Mancha Reserve, which would soon attract the attention of specialized critics and personalities.
In the barrels of that time there is evidence of a visit to the winery, in 1973, by His Holiness’s Nuncio and the brand was featured prominently in the book “La Rosa de Alejandría”, by Vázquez Montalbán.
Since then, a continuous process of technical improvements and improvement of the facilities have given rise to a company that, without leaving the stamp and style of a family tradition, enjoys a solid reputation and occupies leadership positions in the national and international market.
