The Mar de Frades winery is located in Val do Salnés, the historic capital of Albariño, protected by the Rías Baixas Designation of Origin. It was born in 1987 as the result of the dream of a group of winegrowers in love with their land, and determined to recover the native varieties of the area.
The name of this winery and its wine, Mar de Frades, has its origin in its land, meaning in Galician "Mar de los Frailes". The enclave of this sea can be seen from the winery and its vineyards, and it is where pilgrims from the sea route who made the Camino de Santiago disembarked in the past. Its privileged location, on the hillside, in the center of the Salnés Valley and facing the Arosa estuary, creates a microclimate thanks to the Atlantic breezes.
Albariño is a grape variety originating in Galicia, with great fruity aromatic potential and floral nuances.
In stainless steel tanks, and subsequent contact on their own lees for 8 months to bring smoothness, volume and complexity to the wine. Two months in French oak barrels to add nuances and delicacy, where the wine ends up becoming an enological jewel.
Harvest: Manual in boxes of Godello bunches, from the direct vineyard to the winery. In the winery, the grapes are manually selected on the sorting tables of the best grapes for further processing.
