When, in 1947, Fermín Ayuso Roig decided to found his own winery in Villarrobledo, an ideal location due to its climate and soil, he began a family tradition in vine-growing and wine-making that has made Bodegas Ayuso a reference of the highest quality and solidity in the market.
In 1961, the winery began the commercialization of bottled wine after setting up cellars with Bordeaux-type oak barrels, which would become the first ageing facility in the region. With the 1965 harvest, the Estola brand was launched, the flagship of the winery and the first Reserve wine in La Mancha, which very soon would attract the attention of the specialist critics and personalities.
Since then, a continuous process of technical improvements and perfecting of the facilities has given rise to a company which, without ever abandoning the seal and style of a family tradition, enjoys a solid reputation and occupies positions of leadership in the national and international markets.
After different analyses of the various plots, the rootstock and the most appropriate variety were chosen and, by means of forms of training and pruning systems, different micro-climates were obtained, adapted to the different varieties. On the Estate, the planting density is high in order to achieve production from very low-growing vinestock.
Cultivation is on high in trellises order to avoid splashing and achieve the best aeration and healthy, quality fruits. And we constantly measure the humidity and pH in real time, to make the necessary corrections.
We study the best orientation depending on the varieties and the hours of sunshine, and we submit the vines to hydric stress to control the yield and aromatic concentration.The grapes are harvested in the early morning, when the temperatures are at their lowest, and, after selecting the bunches, the grapes are immediately turned into wine.

Bodegas Ayuso are proud of their history while also embracing modernity, which means they have everything required to achieve quality wines. At their winery, in recent years, they have made constant efforts to modernise the facilities through the implementation of the technologically most advanced processes.For example, the receipt of the grapes is controlled by computer, for automatic analysis and classification.
And all of this in perfect harmony with another essential part of the process: the keeping of the wine in thousands of oak barrels which imbue the flavours and aromas of long years of ageing. Bodegas Ayuso were the first winery to make a Reserva in the region.
Fermentation is in new stainless steel tanks that have double water-filled jackets to precisely control the fermentation temperature. After fermentation it spends 36 months in American oak barrels.
