WHO CAN CONTRACT
Located in Salvaterra do Miño, on the banks of the river, is the Pazo that presides over the farm and gives its name to the winery. In 2003, Bodegas y Viñedos del Marqués de Vargas acquired this historic estate of 30 hectares in Rías Baixas, in the chosen sub-denomination of Condado de Tea.
The Pazo de San Mauro, originally owned by the noble Spanish-Portuguese family of the Pereira de Castro, descendants of King Sancho I of Portugal, was built in 1591. The cultivation of the vineyard was always linked to its history, as evidenced by the remains of the old winery that can be seen in its construction, which attest that wine was already made in the 16th century.
Since its acquisition, large investments have been made in it, both in the restoration of its noble buildings and in the construction of a new winery equipped with the latest technology for optimal winemaking.
