Experience some of the best value for money Albariño wines in the world from this legendary winery.

Pazo de Rubianes is a historic winery and estate located in the Galicia region in northwest Spain. Specifically, it's situated in the Rías Baixas DO (Denominación de Origen), a region well-known for producing high-quality white wines, particularly those made from the Albariño grape.

The history of Pazo de Rubianes dates back to the 15th century. The estate includes a magnificent manor house, or "pazo," which is a traditional type of Galician palace. Surrounded by vineyards and a remarkable botanical garden with hundreds of different camellia species, the estate is not just a place for wine production but also a spot of rich cultural and natural beauty.

Pazo de Rubianes is highly respected for its Albariño wines. Albariño is a white grape variety that thrives in the cool, coastal climate of Rías Baixas. The wines it produces are typically fresh, crisp, and aromatic, with high acidity and flavors that can include peach, apricot, melon, pineapple, and green apple, often with a distinct saline minerality due to the region's coastal influence.

The winemaking philosophy at Pazo de Rubianes combines respect for tradition with modern techniques. The winery practices careful viticulture, with a strong emphasis on maintaining the health and biodiversity of the vineyards.

In addition to producing wine, Pazo de Rubianes is also a popular destination for wine tourism. Visitors to the estate can tour the historic pazo, walk through the scenic gardens, and, of course, taste the wines.

About this wine:

After a cold maceration of the whole grapes, for the production of this wine we use only the run juice from the macerator’s bleeding. Fermented at low temperature (less than 16.5 ° C) for a period of 5 weeks, later the wine is transfered to a deposit of 1500 L, enabled exclusively for this wine, where it remains aging with its lees for 6 months. Once the aging process is over, the lees are removed, and the wine remains in the same tank until it is bottled, just before the harvesting of the following year.
