Winemaker's Notes:

Albariño is the local grape and is known for its ability to ripen in this cool corner of Spain. In addition, it maintains its natural acidity well leading to fresh, balanced wines. Adegas Gran Vinum uses different rootstocks on free-draining slopes as opposed to slightly more fertile plots to assure even ripening.
My Notes:

About Adegas Gran Vinum:

Adegas Gran Vinum is a small, family-owned winery. It opened in its current form only in 2002, and uses only the most modern growing and production techniques. However, it was founded on land owned and lovingly cultivated by the owner’s grandparents so that the winery is able to work with old traditions to balance out the modern methods. The winery is located in Galicia, in northwest Spain, right on the border with Portugal and on the Atlantic Ocean.
