Castelo do Mar Albariño
Galicia :: Spain
The winery is located in Arbo, Pontevedra, where the wines are produced and bottled using modern equipment and techniques. This is a “Vino de Pago” winery, producing wines with grapes from a single estate or property. The vineyard is very carefully managed to ensure excellent quality. It was planted after merging more than 200 small farms, the property of more than 70 different owners, plot by plot - a clear reflection of the Galician “smallholding”. The Albariño vines are cultivated on trellises, giving more airy, sun-kissed and less acidic grapes than those obtained with other vine-training techniques. Moreover, the vineyard avoids many the phytosanitary treatments applied in other sub-areas of this appellation of origin.
