Pegaso is the project of Telmo Rodriguez and Pablo Eguzkiza in the Sierra de Gredos west of Madrid. As a youth, Telmo would hike throughout Spain with his father, searching out old, forgotten vineyards, particularly along the Cañada Reales. Cebreros, a village and now appellation within the Sierra de Gredos, was one of those forgotten regions he discovered, and in 1999 Telmo began to make wine under the name Pegaso, a tribute to the famous Spanish car and truck manufacturer of the 1940s. Today, Marc Isart makes the wines from old-vine, bush trained orgainc Garnacha in soils of brown slate and granite from historic vineyards in Sierra de Gredos.

Zeta is the Cebreros village wine, produced from over 60-year-old, organically-farmed, bush-trained Garnacha vines fermented with native yeasts and aged for six months in 500 liter French oak barrels and six months in steel. It offers a clear picture of the clarity, harmony, and elegance of Cebreros Garnacha, perfectly highliting the depth and fruit character gleaned from the slate and granite soils of the village and its vineyards: Villaescusa, El Robledillo, El Mojón, and El Presidente which range from 890m to 920m in altitude.
