Pazo de Villarei

Galicia’s Celtic heritage is evident in the logo of Bodegas Pazo de Villarei, a newly dynamic enterprise with 81 hectares in Salnés, heartland of the Rías Baixas and centred on the charming town of Cambados (where a good parador with swimming pool awaits the weary wine tourist!).

The vineyards are located at altitudes between 100 and 300 m above sea level. An ideal micro-climate is created there with a temperate and humid climate. Mild temperatures in the summer allow the grapes to ripen slowly, thus maintaining all the aromas of the varieties as well as a significant level of acidity, both necessary for producing fresh fruity wines.

The banks of the River Umia provide shallow and sandy soil, abetting the humid Atlantic climate, which helps the maturation of the albariño grape used in making their single varietal wines. A natural and long fermentation in stainless-steel tanks at very low temperatures preserve all the aromatic potential of the variety.

Daily Express

Fresh and fruity, a super introduction to Spanish albariño. Bursting with citrus aromas and flavours, fresh and light.
