About the producer

Santa Marta is a family owned & run winery that has been crafting its own wine since 1998 with one main aim – ultimate quality and authenticity. Santa Marta’s vineyards are located at an altitude of 600m in an area where the climate is characterized by cold winters and warm summers. The significant elevation of the vineyards as well as the mineral rich soils (slate and granite) ensure that the resulting wines offer marked natural vitality and persistence of expressive flavour. The cool temperatures of this Atlantic influenced region provide a more gradual, extended ripening period.

All Santa Marta’s wines qualify for the D.O of Valdeorras. Based upon a marriage of tradition and innovation, Santa Marta strive to fashion the most expressive examples of their local grape varieties – namely Godello for whites and Mencia for reds. The majority of vines are at least 50 years of age. In total Santa Marta control 30 hectares of vineyard, 12 hectares of their own and 18 hectares worked under contract with local, like-minded growers.
