Basic Info

In 1998, 3 winemakers and friends Margarita Madrigal, Gonzalo Rodriguez and Alexandra Schmedes founded MAS QUE VINOS - a wine consulting firm, taking them to work for wineries across Spain. Their expierence is based on many years of work in Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Italy, Germany, France and South Africa. In 1999 they came to Dosbarrios (Toledo), Gonzalo's hometown. Seeing the great potential of the vineyards of the area they launched their own winery project, BODEGAS ERCAVIO, basing their philosophy on the use of the indigenous grape varieties to make high quality wine. They renovated an old family winery (from 1851) and in 2007 the construction of the new winery in CabaƱas de Yepes (a short distance from Dosbarrios) was completed.
