Starting from an over-mature, hand-harvested grape, the elaboration process starts with the priority objective of very gentle treatment during the harvesting, and hygiene and quality; for this purpose Pago de La Jaraba has the most modern production technology, in order to fatigue the product as little as possible and extract the best from the same.

Our commitment to quality leads us to eliminate worm conveyors and pumps from the elaboration processes, in order not to damage the bunches, the grapes themselves and the pips in the process, introducing the use of vibration hoppers in the reception of the grape and OVIS in the harvesting and transport movements. 

Once the wine comes into being, we change technology for tradition; the fermentation devatting takes us to the maturing warehouse where the wine starts a short evolution path in French oak barrels and epoxidic resin lined concrete tanks, and in which malolactic fermentation and all the decanting and coupage processes necessary take place until the wine is taken to the maturing warehouse in the first cold days of winter. 

Pago de La Jaraba currently has three different product ranges in the market, under the brand names of AZAGADOR, VIÑA JARABA and PAGO DE LA JARABA, which include the marketing of the blended red wines of the varietals of the estate, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and a Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay monovarietal white wine of exceptional singularity.

La Jaraba is  an enclosed estate within a sole perimeter, which facilitates the development of its crops and exploitations without any interference from other adjoining estates, allowing agronomic unity and, above all, planning. 

We should emphasise that the “Pago”  is a site-location of land located on extraordinary soil and with a microclimate that favours the growth of a certain types of crops, which develop better quality and enhance their qualities, resulting in products that are distinguished from those of other nearby areas due to their personality and unique style.

La Jaraba is located on the historical site of the same name, between the municipalities of Villarrobledo and El Provencio, in the heart of La Mancha. 

Very few estates, countryseats or determined areas can boast of having such a rich history as La Jaraba, Palaeolithic settlements have been found on the shore of the Valdelobos River that crosses the estate. This proves that La Jaraba was already a place with excellent conditions for agriculture and livestock, which allowed stable settlements throughout history: Iberians, Romans (possible introduction of vines in the area), Visigoths and later on Arabs; the latter gave it its current name, to be then recovered by the Kingdom of Castile. Jaraba is an Arab term that means “abundant water or drink”.

At the beginning of the twentieth century, the estate became the property of another owner, who revolutionised the production system of the estate, and specifically recovered and improved the vines, olives and livestock for La Jaraba, building a winery, cheese factory and olive oil press on the same estate in order to transform it into a comprehensive agro-food exploitation, with the clear objective of increasing the quality of the products for which the estate or Pago de La Jaraba was recognised. We are so proud of our products that all of them, Wine, Artisan Manchego Cheese, and Extra Virgin Olive Oil are commercialized exclusively under our own brands: Pago de La Jaraba, La Jaraba, Viña Jaraba and Azagador.
