Pago Gran Casa - Organic and Natural in Moixant

Located in what is referred to as the Tuscany of Valencia, Pago Casa Gran is a beautiful, organic vineyard with about 250 acres of grapes, as well as olive and apricot trees. Owned by the Laso Galbis family for decades, the vineyard is hundreds of years old, with ruins of an old winery on part of the property. Today while the grapes are tended to in natural and traditional ways, including manual harvesting, the winery is modern and state of the art.

Pago Gran Casa makes their wines in the most natural way possible in favor of the flavor and quality of the wines. They use gravity not pumps to move and mix the wines. It helps that the owner is an engineer and has cleverly designed the winery with innovative equipment.

Native yeasts and a mix of local and foreign grape varieties – Garnacha/Grenache, Monastrell, Moscatel, Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Gew├╝rztraminer – are used to make the wines. Pago Gran Casa makes three red wines (vino tinto), Reposo, Falcata Casa Gran, and Falacat Arenal, and two white wines both called Reposo.

You can visit the vineyard and winery but you must make an appointment in advance and visits are only offered on Saturdays from 9:00 am  to 2:00 pm.
