Our products

Our wines reflect the landscape of our vineyards and their terroir, conveying the care with which the vines are treated. They are extremely aromatic wines with notes of the wild fruits and flowers of our vineyard. They are very fresh with a light touch of acidity, marked by their shallow and slightly acidic sandy loam soils. The Rías Baixas D.O. Albariño is a young, dry and intensely aromatic wine, regarded as the best white wine from Spain.

Our Pazo Pondal liqueurs and orujos are prepared with Albariño grape pomace and come from our vineyards. After a slow fermentation, they are distilled in a still using only the traditional drip method, utilizing the central portion of the distillation, the “heart”, containing the highest quality spirit.

The 2014 vintage was the result of a winter with mild temperatures and little rainfall. After a rainy spring with a cooler than usual May and continuous rain, we headed into a summer with low temperatures and abundant rainfall. These changes led to a significant delay in the maturation of the grapes. Fortunately, in late September to early October we enjoyed warm days that provided very aromatic, fresh and more acidic musts than usual.

PAZO PONDAL

Our Premium brand. Grapes selected for Pazo Pondal come from Leira Longa, a lower altitude plot that provides less acidity, more body, and greater concentration in the wines. It is characterised by its shallow, acidic granite soils with a pH of 5.8. It is the only estate using a traditional trellis system, which allows greater aeration of the bunches and protects them from direct sunlight.

GODELLO

The soils of our farms have the appropriate skills to extract the maximum potential of each variety and to produce unique wines respecting the typicality of the area. The plot has an east-west orientation and has a peculiar microclimate. We understand the needs of each sub-plot to obtain low yields and higher quality grapes, from which we can obtain maximum expression thanks to its altitude and steep slope. The Godello is one of the most appreciated white varieties, due to its quality and scarcity, since it is only found in Bierzo and in a part of our Galician land, the Denomination of Origin Valdeorras.
