Pago Casa Gran
Enjoy over three centuries of winemaking tradition when you indulge in a single sip of Pago Gran Casa wine. Made with natural yeasts and grapes grown in carefully maintained biodiverse vineyards, each of Pago Gran Casa’s wines are high-quality, artisanal, and a celebration of the art of winemaking.
Pago Casa Gran’s History
Pago Casa Gran has been making artisanal wines in the Les Alcusses valley of Spain for more than 300 years. Some wine remnants found on-premises and at nearby establishments date back to biblical times! After production halted at the original winery, Manuela Glabis brought the estate back to life in the 1960s. Her son took over the business, and Pago Casa Gran has flourished ever since. Today, the brand is led by a small group of local wine aficionados who each bring a vital element to the winemaking process and business.
Pago Casa Gran’s Mission
Pago Casa Gran is a winery committed to creating high-quality, sustainable wines and constantly improving its estate. A priority is placed in biodiversity in the vineyards, so cover crops are grown year-round with factors like plant vigor, grapevine density, and soil composition are taken carefully into account. In this way, Pago Casa Gran encourages the growth of a complete, thriving ecosystem centered around their vines.

The brand is committed to using only native yeasts in wine production, ensuring that every varietal is naturally fermented and completely authentic.
