TypeVino de Pago

Campo de la Guardia is a Vino de Pago from Spain. This is the highest category on the quality scale of Spanish wines and means that in addition to having a proven track record of consistent quality, the wines have to be both produced from estate-grown grapes and also have to be processed and aged in a winery (bodega) located on the estate.

This Vino de Pago is located in the municipality of La Guardia, in the province of Toledo (Castile-La Mancha, Spain) and acquired its status on 20 August 2009.
