Pazo de Rubianes Winery

Steeped in history and tradition, the Pazo de Rubianes Winery is a testament to the timeless allure of artisanal winemaking. Nestled in the heart of the Pazo de Rubianes, the winery's roots can be traced back to the 15th century, where grapes were hand-crushed and pressed, heralding the start of a completely artisanal winemaking process. In the wake of the phylloxera plague, the vineyard gradually faded from the estate. However, under the stewardship of the eighteenth Lord of the House of Rubianes, Don Gonzalo Ozores de Urcola, the vineyard was reborn in the nineties of the last century. Starting with a modest 6 hectares, the vineyard has blossomed to cover a sprawling 25 hectares today. The Pazo de Rubianes Winery is a testament to the resilience and innovation of its founders. Its wines are the result of a harmonious blend of traditional and modern winemaking techniques, reflecting the rich history and unique terroir of the estate. Each bottle encapsulates the spirit and dedication of the people who have nurtured the vineyard back to life, promising a wine experience that is as rich and captivating as its history.

About the 2021 Albariño:

The grapes for this wine are sourced from the estate's high trellis zone and are processed within three hours of harvest to preserve their quality. After a period of cold maceration, fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature conditions. Following fermentation, the wine is aged on its lees, then undergoes cold stabilization before being bottled. This meticulous process, spanning 8 to 10 months, ensures optimal and enduring enjoyment of this Albariño's crisp, fresh character and complex flavor profile.
