Pago de Tharsys
At Pago de Tharsys they elaborate with high quality wines, following a strong purpose of expressing the personality of the “terroir” and their dedication and passion for the land and wine. The special location of the cellar in the centre of the vineyard allows them to reduce to few minutes the time between harvest and the beginning of the grapes elaboration, avoiding a pre-fermentation or oxidation of grapes, and gratifying the higher quality for the resulting wines. In the elaboration, they use traditional methods together with the most innovative techniques as for example long macerations and immersed head.
Their wines are elaborated respecting their natural composition, without treatments that would modify its natural properties. The ageing of wines is made in new oak barrels. They use French oak and American oak. Coopers are selected according their wood stocks and drying status, to obtain the best wood aromas. The Pago de Tharsys Vineyard has twelve hectares of vineyard where are met exceptional conditions for obtaining the best raw material for elaborating their wines.
The cellar is equipped with private rooms to organize wine tastings, meetings, lunches, conferences and different kind of professional or private events. The cellar also has a space “Boutique” where it is possible to taste the wines
In search of the highest quality, since 2002 Pago de Tharsys is carrying out night harvest, a proven technique of precision viticulture and oenology.
Why night harvest?
Grape harvests at night, when temperatures are low, around 12ºC –13ºC and the grapes enzymatic activity is minimum, allows avoiding its oxidation and preserve all their organoleptic potential. The result of this type of harvest at low temperatures is a more complex, fruity, elegant and long-lived wine.
