The vineyard plots are distributed in well considered places within the geography of the Valley of El Salnés . Some are next to the sea with marked Atlantic influence. Others further inland with remarkable influence of pine groves and forests of eucaliptuses. The balanced presence of both factors contributes precisely to the formation of the nature of our grape albariño and to the personality and final definition of our wines.

Harvested by hand with a careful selection of grapes which enhances their quality and external appearance, the grapes reach the cellar in small capacity boxes. Once there, the grapes are placed on a conveyor belt where a further selection is carried out, avoiding those bunches and grains unsuitable for the elaboration of our wines.


On its first stage in warehouse the grape is stripped and slightly crushed prior to being transferred to a static maceration storage where the grape will stay for several hours obtaining a good dissolution of its components in must. After monitored follow- up controls and when the dissolution is deemed appropriate, the must is separated from the solid grape remains and transferred to the clarification tanks while the solid parts go to press where they will be smoothly pressed. The clarification is made in suitable tanks at low temperatures and adequate timing, according to the nature of musts.

Once the clarification is finished, the clean must goes to the fermentation vats. It will be kept there at low temperature for several weeks in a smooth and slow process which will make up the personality of the wine we are about to obtain. Once this stage is over, the clean wine already constituted is transferred to ageing storage tanks where in a slow, smooth and sometimes partial way, the malo-lactic fermentation will take place. When this process is finished, already by the next springtime, the wine with its nature and personality already defined goes to second ageing storage tanks where, at low temperature, will spend its phase of polishing and natural stabilization. During this phase, that will last for several months, the wine completes its defining and acquires its own characteristics. The elaborating process aims to achieve a wine able to convey the varietal features of the albariño grape, which have so much contributed to its excellence, along with a modern and state of the art wine that is so attractive for the connaisseurs and consumers. In Autumn, when the wine characteristics are totally defined, it is time for bottling. During the year spent in the cellar, all intrinsic components of our grape albariño have been extracted and integrated in perfect balance into the wine that we have finally obtained. A wine that has reached its natural stability and a character and personality of its own , so much longed for since its origins.


Our own design for a bottle with reminiscences of the past although daringly modern in its finishing and design which will probably set the trends for the near future. It also adds an innovative and airtight glass cork that favors wine evolution not facilitating its oxidation though preserving its floral and fruit ranges intact, being this extremely important for a wine of such characteristics as our albariño, with the particularity that all TCA ( cork taste) is avoided.

The exterior design of the bottle recalls the wild fauna natural of Rias Baixas in its own habitat, Besides, years ago we have pioneered the launching of a thermo sensitive labeling (our first marketed albariño). In this new design, several silkscreened images are outlining the bottle. In the top part of the bottle the image of a fish will appear, made visible only when the optimal serving temperature is reached.
