Bodegas Ayuso

Bodegas Ayuso was founded in 1947 by Fermin Ayuso Roig in the heart of the La Mancha region, famous for its association with Cervantes and Don Quixote. In 1961 it started selling wines in bottle, locally at first, starting export in 1985 and it now sells to most of the major markets around the world.

They were the first winery in La Mancha to start producing Reserva wines.They have 350 hectares of vines themselves with grapes also sourced from growers on long term contracts. They have a new winery with ultra-modern refrigeration, filtering and bottling together with underground storage for 12000 barrels and the storage capacity will increase to 35 million litres. This is a bodega which combines tradition with a forward thinking approach.

Vintage guide

Always difficult to generalise about Spain but 2022 saw high temperatures and an early harvest of clean grapes, the early signs look good. The 2021 vintage is very good after a warm dry season with wines showing good concentration and aromatics. A wet first half of the 2020 vintage meant a lot of work in the vineyard was needed but a better, more consistent second half resulted in some juicy young wines with those ageing in barrel looking very promising. A very good year, 2019 had warm dry conditions but yields were limited by a tricky flowering period. A cooler and wetter year than other recent vintages has endowed the wines of 2018 with greater freshness and lower alcohols. Across the country the wines are showing good aromatics, plenty of weight, and a juicy fresh character. Growers had a complex year in 2017 having to contend with frost, hail and drought. Yields are down as a result, but the picture overall is of good quality particularly in Galicia and the South, Penedès also performed well. The 2016 vintage was pretty good on the whole with Ribera del Duero, Rioja and Rueda having excellent results. 2015 was heralded as the best vintage across Spain in recent years, and particularly so in the north. 2014 saw some good wines made with a little rain in the second half of harvest and low yields. This came after the potentially great 2013 vintage which has given fresh, vibrant, robust wines.
