Finca Élez is a single estate which was established as Vino de Pago in 2002. It was one of the two first Vino de Pago recognized in Spain.
The estate is situated near the village of El Bonillo (Albacete). It is a well-Kept farming enterprise, sharped by its owner, Manuel Manzaneque, to draw from its quality wines, by strictly limiting the production volume of these that bear his name. This winery is in the heart of the mountains of Sierra de Alcaraz at 1080 meters about sea level, in a microclimate singled out by steep temperature gradients between night and day.
The estate is an authentic “domaine”, with some 85 acres of vineyards. The Cabernet, Merlot, Chardonnay, and Syrah, like oak casks, were brought over personally from Bordeaux, Burgundy and the Rodano. These varieties as well as the native grape, Tempranillo, are processed as soon as they come in from the harvest, winepresses, fermentation tanks and bottling plant; the vineyard to the bottle to obtain a different wine.
Furthermore, the special characteristics of the types of soil have been carefully analyzed: loose, with sandy clay, containing limestone, firm components, marl and ochre clays, with a high potassium content.
