“This is the story of a guy” so begins the short biography of Ivo Pagès, founder of Vinya Ivo. This is the story of an epicurean guy with soul and passion from a young age by the world of the vines and Wine.
Son of the viticulturist in the Médoc and then in the Blaye, Ivo Pagès lived during the holidays in the family house in Cadaqués (Spain) surrounded by vineyards and the rest of the year at the homestead. It is enough to mention that in this environment he was bathed soon after birth and that for him it was always clear that he would turn a winemaker.
Lover and connoisseur of French, Italian and Spanish wines, he asked himself the question “Where to create his wines?”. He decided to settle in the area of Cadaqués in Catalonia for several reasons.
The first is a special attachment to this city that welcomed himself so often as a child; the second is the presence of a great terroir. The third is that in France the administrative weight is so heavy that one has to spend more time “in the papers for the vineyard” than in anything else.
