Albariño is an early-ripening variety, so the harvest usually begins in mid-September and gradually unfolds over the course of two weeks, depending on the degree of ripening and the quantity of the yield. In keeping with tradition, the grapes are harvested entirely by hand to guarantee the integrity of the fruit. They are stored and transported in crates of no more than 20 kilograms per crate so that optimal conditions of the fruit are maintained from the moment it is picked to its arrival at our winery.
The history of DO Rías Baixas dates back to 1980, when an official denomination was created specifically for the Albariño grape variety. When Spain entered the European Union (EU) in 1986, however, the denomination was changed to Rías Baixas as EU wine laws did not recognize a DO named for a single grape variety. DO Rías Baixas is regulated by the Consejo Regulador (local governing body) which ensures adherence to permitted grape varieties, viticultural practices, winemaking and aging procedures.
Cultivating Albariño grapes in the Rías Baixas is an intricate process because of the climatic conditions found in the Val do Salnés subzone. The most relevant of these is undeniably the abundant rainfall and humidity. That is why growers still prefer the traditional method of trellising the vines horizontally using granite posts for support. This method ensures optimal ripening conditions by maximizing sunlight while simultaneously keeping the vines away from ground humidity and facilitating airflow.
