Wine Makers

Senorio de Ayud by Cesar Langa

Calatayud is an arid, rocky and romantic region in North East Spain. Poets were writing about wine production here in 500BC. Centuries later, Juan and Cesar Langa continue to provide a muse for artists as they proudly maintain their independent winery.


THE FAMILY

They are the 5th generation of winemakers and are one of only three independent growers in a region dominated by bulk-wine co-operatives. The whole operation is a family affair. Their father oversees the business, Juan and Cesar are in control of winemaking and their sister, Maria Teresa, pulls the administrative strings.

 

THE VINEYARD

Today their grapes are grown in the environs of the rugged and beautiful slopes of Mount Vicor. Their 70 hectares are split over two vineyards with distinctive and contrasting micro-climates.

Los Yermos translates as “the wilderness” and this vineyard is described as “an oasis in the middle of the dessert.” Wild rosemary and thyme scent the air, and here red grapes are in their element with the flat, stony minerals and clay soil. Higher up the slopes of Mount Vicor, the white grapes of El Coll enjoys higher rainfall and a cooler climate. The presence of pine, cherry and almond trees prove the disparity of this region.

 

THE WINEMAKING

Juan and Cesar are proud of the wild beauty of their region. This is why they practice 100% organic winemaking. They feel that it is vital to maintain the natural flora, fauna and micro-biology of their ecosystem. Doing so promotes a healthy balance in the soil and allows natural yeasts to propagate on their grapes. The Langa family are continuing to improve Spain’s record of independent and artisanal winemaking
