Bodegas Arrayán was founded in 1999 as a personal project of entrepreneur José María Entrecanales and his wife María Marsans, on their estate of La Verdosa, located in Santa Cruz de Retamar in Toledo. They planted Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot in the section of the vineyard with the highest altitude, in harmony with the holm oak trees scattered around the estate. Their goal is to achieve wines that are an eloquent expression of their terroir. To this end, their vine-growing practices are environmentally-friendly, without herbicides or pesticides, in order to favor biodiversity and balance. Fermentation occurs spontaneously using the grapes’ natural yeasts, without any added products. The grapes from each vineyard are processed separately so as to bring out the personality of each estate and village.
