PAZO DE VILLAREI

The Pazo de Villarei vineyards extend along the Salnés valley in the heart of the D.O Rias Baixas. A humid Atlantic micro climate perfect for the Albariño grape variety, at 100-300m above sea level.

In 2015 all winemaking was consolidated into the one winery located near the Altos de Torona vineyards (above) which has IFS quality control accreditation and the capacity for screwcap bottling.  The combined winery now has a capacity in excess of 1 million litres.

The Rías Baixas picked 40 million kg of grapes in the year 2011, of which 23 million belonged to the subarea of O Salnés.
