Grandes Pagos de España

Panel Discussion
With Beatriz Hernández, María del Yerro, Rick Fisher, Xavier Gramona
May 11 2021

Summary:

Grandes Pagos de Espana was founded in 2004 with only 12 member wineries and a mission to defend the unique personality of single-estate wines and make them known to the world. Today, the organization has grown to a select group of 35 wineries with representation on both mainland Spain and the Balearic Islands. All producers are committed to producing wines which reflect the harmony of soil, nature, and climate in their respective vineyards.

We invite you to join our Spanish Programs Director, Rick Fisher, for an introduction and deeper dive into the organization. In addition to learning more about the organization they will discuss numerous topics important to wine consumers today (including organic and biodynamic viticulture). He will be joined by Beatriz Hernandez, Manager of Grandes Pagos de Espana, and three winemaking families: Xavier and Leo Gramona (father/son) from Penedes (Catalunya), Araceli and Javier Ribas (sister/brother) from Mallorca (Balearic Islands), and Maria del Yerro and Miguel Alonso (mother/son) from Ribera del Duero (Castilla y Leon).

Meet the Panel:

The panel discussion will be hosted by Rick Fisher, WSG's Spanish Program Director who will be joined by Beatriz Hernandez, the manager of Grandes Pagos de Espana; Xavier Gramona, fifth generation and Vice President of Gramona together with Leo Gramona, the sixth generation; Araceli Ribas, Commercial and Technical Director and Javier Ribas, Financial and Technical Director from Bodegas Ribas; and Maria del Yerro, General Manager with Miguel Alonso, Managing Director of Vinedos Alonso del Yerro.

    Greetings to Araceli & Javier Ribas. We've visited Bodega Ribas many times for tours and tastings, hosted by Sylvia Ottmann. Excellent operation and superb wines. The family home, built in 1776 is part of the tour, followed by tasting in their lovely garden. We're looking forward to our next visit.
