Characteristics of Pago de Valtarreña
Pago de Valtarreña is a red wine from the Ribera del Duero region produced by the Carmelo Rodero winery. At first Carmelo Rodero continued his family tradition and began looking after his families vineyards for a few years, but later decided to opt out of this, and in 1990 started his own career.
Pago de Valtarreña is made using Tinta del Pais (100%) grapes taken from vineyards owned by the Valtarreña family. The vineyards are around 45-55 years old on calcareous clay soils and french sands.
The grapes are harvested by hand in 12kg boxes. Fermentation is then carried out in stainless steel tanks, with maceration in French oak barrels. Pago de Valtarreña is then aged for 24 months in 225 litre French oak barrels with a selected grain that are on average 18 months old.

Ribera del Duero is a Denomination of Origin located on the northern plateau, bathed by the waters of the River Duero, where they produce delicious and recognised red wines with great complexity made from the Trinto Fino grape variety.
Coming from a family of wine growers in the coastal village of Pedrosa de Duero, Burgos, Carmelo Rodero belongs to the fourth generation of winemakers. His grandparents produced wine in the classic and antique presses, until the founding of the Cooperativa Vinícola de Pedrosa de Duero, in which their grandparents were founders.
