The Bodegas Enguera story is D. Pedro Pérez Pardo's story. He comes from a small hill town in the Valencia hinterland. His family struggled in the difficult circumstances of 1940s post-war Spain. He began working at a very young age (i.e. without diplomas) and worked for the biggest butane gas distributor in the Mediterranean area. But he dreamt of his own vineyard. In the 1960s and 1970s he bought land and farms for growing citrus and olives, ... until he finally bought a bodega in Enguera in 1999.
From 2002, he decided to invest in organic winegrowing, and by 2011 all his plots were certified for organic winegrowing. Meantime, children and grandchildren joined the ranks of Bodegas Enguera and then established Planet Enguera in 2014: a research centre focused on the study of the effects of climate change on wine production, and equally importantly, the search for concrete solutions. The most important grapes are Monastrell for red and Verdil for white.
