Pegaso Verdejo

Appearance: Bright lemon colour. Aroma: Fresh, elegant and complex. Great intensity of fruity aroma, covering the spectrum of stone fruits, citrus (lemon, grapefruit) and white fruits (pear). Taste: Creamy, luscious, fresh and equilibrated, with a great structure that brings into a long aftertaste, plenty of fresh fruit nuances.

It was exactly in 1890 when the first generation of the Fernández de Manzanos family established a small winery in Azagra with capacity of 50,000 litres of wine.

In the 40’s they inaugurated a new facility which further increased its capacity to 350,000 litres, emphasizing the value of the viticultural tradition of this area.

In the 90s, Víctor Fernández de Manzanos Pastor, the fourth generation of the family, joined the family business after studying Chemical Engineering and having obtained a Master’s Degree in Viticulture and Enology by the Technical School of Agronomic Engineering from Madrid Polytechnical University. Víctor is the first member of the family with training in viticulture and oenology. Víctor then builds the Winery Marqués de Butrago and decides to perform his life project, the construction of Bodegas Manzanos.

Many changes have occurred in Manzanos in these six years since Víctor, the eldest of the Fernández de Manzanos brothers, disembarked in the winery after arriving from London, prepared to take the reins of the family business. His father, Víctor Fernández de Manzanos Pastor, author of the project for the current winery, had suddenly just died and this young man, at only twenty years of age, became the company’s engine, assuming the position of CEO.

At that time, the company lacked creditworthiness, asphyxiated by the credits for the new facilities and the distribution of product was confined to the local scope with the traditional brand, Viña Marichalar, to which a new mid-high range brand had just been added, Finca Manzanos, gave way to the start of the Bodegas Manzanos project.

The winery had four underground floors for wine elaboration and ageing and a common reception area on the ground floor. By then, there were 12 workers and a weak commercial network, neither national nor international. Nevertheless, today the company’s team is made up of more than 155 people.
