Tucked away in the backstreets of La Seca (population 1,000) a visit to Bodegas Martínsancho feels like a step back in time. There is only a single wine produced here, less than 2500 cases of an inimitable Verdejo that takes its name from a 17th-century vineyard called El Pago de Martínsancho. Some bush vines in this vineyard are pushing 200 years of age and represent the oldest Verdejo vines in the world. The original one-acre Martínsancho plot was expanded in the 1970s using massale cuttings from the ancient plot, yet those original vines persist, producing tiny volumes of fruit.

Although this Estate boasts a winemaking tradition that dates back centuries, it was not until 1981 that Ángel Rodríguez began to bottle his own wine. Rodríguez was known as ‘The Man Who Saved Verdejo’, the indigenous grape grown in the area since the 11th century. The variety almost became extinct in the 1970s when many vineyards were being pulled up to plant Sauvignon Blanc and Viura. Rodríguez persisted, and shortly before passing away in 2018, his work was honoured with the Cross of the Civil Order of Agricultural Merit by King Juan Carlos I of Spain.
