Led by winemaker Carlos Castro Serantes, the philosophy is to make a high quality Albariño which conveys the unique “terroir” of the Salnés Valley. Soils are decomposed granite and sand with excellent drainage. All 14 hectares are trained in the characteristic ‘Parral’ training system (pergola).The harvest is completely manual using small crates with the utmost care so that the grapes arrive at the winery in the best possible condition.
