In 1947, when Fermín Ayuso Roig decided to found his own winery in Villarrobledo, an ideal location due to its climate and soil, he began a family tradition in vine-growing and wine-making that has made Bodegas Ayuso a reference of the highest quality and solidity in the market.
In 1961, Bodegas Ayuso winery began the commercialisation of bottled wine after setting up cellars with Bordeaux-type oak barrels, which would become the first ageing facility in the region. With the 1965 harvest, the Estola brand was launched, the flagship of the winery and the first Reserve wine in La Mancha, which very soon would attract the attention of the specialist critics and personalities.
Bodegas Ayuso’s daily works essential part is the permanence of the wine in thousands of oak barrels that provide the personality, aromas and flavor of the aging years, but this tradition is enhanced and developed with innovation, with new technologies already present in the new winery built on an area of 15,000 m2.
Bodegas Ayuso 3,600 m2 winemaking warehouse has tanks with a storage capacity of 8 million liters and in 2017 we will reach 35 million liters.
From the reception of the grapes, analysis and classification to the new self-emptying and self-cleaning tanks, everything represents an advance that undoubtedly carries over to the quality of the wines.
Alternative energy sources, robotization, reduction of energy consumption, among other advantages, constitute what can probably be considered the most modern winery in Spain.
Very recently, Bodegas Ayuso has joined Business News Japan Awards 2020 and won TWO GOLD Medal in this prestigious competition:
