Vino de Pago

In 2003 in Spain Newly introduced wine quality level for privileged areas that correspond to a DO (Vino de Pago) or DOCa (Vino de Pago Calificado) classification. But these are still above and form the top of the quality pyramid. The name is somewhat confusing, because these areas are often referred to as individual layers, but this is not mandatory. A “Vino de Pago” is a region with an edaphic character (soil-dependent, climatic vegetation). It must have its own microclimate that distinguishes it from its surroundings. The area must traditionally be known for producing special wine qualities. The name should have been used as a name for special wines for at least five years. The conditions for the Vino-de-Pago status must be determined by each autonomous region of Spain. The bodega must make a formal application for this and grant the required special features for five years climate. soil types. growth cycle etc. document.

A Vino-de-Pago area must not be the same size or larger than the municipality in which it is located. There must be a quality control system that at least meets the guidelines for a DOCa. If the entire area is within a DOCa, the term "Vino de Pago Calificado" may be used if the defined DOCa requirements are at least met. Derived from this rule, the area does not necessarily have to be within a DO or DOCa area. A Vino-de-Pago area can also consist of different, locally separated vineyards in one area. The individual sections do not have to be connected. But you should be close to the winery. The wines must be grown separately from the others of the company and the process of winemaking must be clearly traceable.

However, the quality level Vino de Pago may not be based on the Spanish term Pago to be confused with actually the term Single Location equivalent. In Spain there are numerous individual layers defined as Pago, which are not classified as Vino de Pago (but could be) and under the name of the DO concerned, for example Ribera del Duero be marketed. In contrast, the Vino de Pagos are marketed as a separate area like a DO. They are, of course, each the sole property of a winery.
