Location of the winery: Extremadura

The winery Carlos Plaza is located in the south-west of Spain, in Extremadura, a region much closer to the Alentejo in Portugal than to any other Spanish wine region. Within Extremadura, it is situated in a tiny and remote rural area, at the outskirts of a small village called Cortegana with less than 200 inhabitants.

The winery is surrounded by immense vine and olive tree fields and accompanied by harmony and peace. Just every now and then, the sound of the men who drive their tractors to the vineyards as well as the burking of their dogs running after them, breaks the silence.

In this unusually peaceful environment, where one can say that inspiration is born, a winery of traditional architecture is situated. It is equipped with the latest and highest technology methods for the winemaking. This is a winery whose main desire is to surprise you in the glass.

The surroundings whisper Extremadura, the countryside, the vineyards, the weather, the sun, the heat. From the winery, we can observe and feel the passion and care for the oldest job a man may know in the area.

Nowadays, we are witnesses and excited actors of the activity of a region that elaborates with the latest technology the grapes of the ancient vines of our ancestors.

Just some privileged people have already appreciated the potential of this humble, yet rich region. Joan Milá, the prestigious winemaker, who sadly died recently, foresaw this potential: “Extremadura is the European California, and when they realise this, they will be able to impose the privileged wines all over the world, as Californian wines have made”
