Winemaker Notes

One of the only wineries in the D.O. Rías Baixas that produces wine solely from estate-owned fruit, Bodegas Fillaboa is unique in their commitment to a single bottling per vintage for the U.S. market,which helps to prevent bottle variation and ensure consistent quality. All wines produced by Fillaboa are made from the Albariño grape variety, a thick-skinned grape known for its rich variety of aromas (16 different aromas have been scientifically recognized). Some consider it to be most closely related to Riesling and believe the name "Albariño," stems from the phrase "white Rhine" in the local dialect of Gallego. Alive with complex aromas of freshly cut greenapple, juicy pineappleand hints of citrus, Fillaboa's 2009 Joven Albariño is crystalline and bright in appearance. Soft on the palate, this wine has well integrated acidity and a balanced flavor profile that enhances its freshness and complexity. Unctuous and refined, this spectacular Albariño has a long, lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

Wine & Spirits
As refreshing as a coastal rain, this wine might convince you that albarino can have a strong sense of place--that margin where the ocean meets the land, the layering of sea on sand paralleled in the motion and persistence of the rich leesiness. Cool, bold and salty, it enters with zip and slowly pulls away into the fat of a cherrystone clam.

Bodegas Fillaboa, Spain
Bodegas Fillaboa Winery Image
Since the founding of the D.O. Rías Baixas in 1988, Bodegas Fillaboa, meaning "the good daughter" in Gallego, has produced some of the rarest and highest quality Albariño in the region. Albariño, known as the "White Rhine," because of its similarity to Riesling, is an indigenous grape varietal to Spain and one of the most sought-after white wines in the world due to its unique and complex flavor profile.

Bodegas Fillaboa is owned by the Masaveu family, who traces their winemaking history to the 14th century, almost the beginning of Spain’s wine tradition. Although the family has since diversified into different business sectors, about 30 years ago Jose Masaveu Herrero decided to resurrect his family’s winemaking past with the purchase of Bodegas Murua in the D.O.Q. Rioja.

In the patient pursuit of excellence, Sr. Masaveu gradually added two more wineries to the family’s portfolio: Pagos de Araiz in the D.O. Navarra, and most recently Bodegas Fillaboa, purchased in 2000. The winery is situated in the province of Pontevedra, near the town of Salvaterra de Miño, which is located on the River Miño separating Spain from Portugal.

Named after the rías, or estuarine inlets, that flow as far as 20 miles inland, Rías Baixas is an Atlantic coastal region with a cool and wet maritime climate. The entire region claims soil based on granite bedrock, but the inlets create five subregions of slightly different growing environments for its prized white grape, Albariño.

Val do Salnés on the west coast is said to be the birthplace of Albariño; it is the coolest and wettest of all of the regions. Having been named as the original subregion, today it has the most area under vine and largest number of wineries.

Ribeira do Ulla in the north and inland along the Ulla River is the newest to be included. It is actually the birthplace of the Padrón pepper!

Soutomaior is the smallest region and is tucked up in the hills at the end of the inlet called Ria de Vigo. Its soils are light and sandy over granite.

O Rosal and Condado do Tea are the farthest south in Rías Baixas and their vineyards actually cover the northern slopes of the Miño River, facing the Vinho Verde region in Portugal on its southern bank.

Albariño gives this region its fame and covers 90% of the area under vine. Caiño blanco, Treixadura and Loureira as well as occasionally Torrontés and Godello are permitted in small amounts in blends with Albariño. Red grapes are not very popular but Mencía, Espadeiro and Caiño Tinto are permitted and grown.

Bright and aromatic with distinctive floral and fruity characteristics, Albariño has enjoyed a surge in popularity and an increase in plantings over the last couple of decades. Thick skins allow it to withstand the humid conditions of its homeland, Rías Baixas, Spain, free of malady, and produce a weighty but fresh white. Somm Secret—Albariño claims dual citizenship in Spain and Portugal. Under the name Alvarinho, it thrives in Portugal’s northwestern Vinho Verde region, which predictably, borders part of Spain’s Rías Baixas.
