    Winemaker Notes

    Very high intensity. Very powerful varietal aromas with notes of apple, white pear, and flower and pollen hints. Citrus aromas and ripe fruit come through accompanied with aniseed notes. A clean, fine and very elegant nose. The evolution in the glass intensifies and polishes all the aromas giving great complexity. A very honest albario with very specific characteristics defined by its origin and terroir.

    Don Olegario, Spain
    Don Olegario Don Olegario Vineyard Winery Image
    This family's devotion to the wine business was started by Adolfo Falcón in 1950. He began a tradition in wine production and commercialization that was to be later continued by his son. In 1980, Olegario Falcón followed in his father's steps and became a wine producer.

    Initially, his production was around 6,000 bottles per year and was sold at a local level. Over the following years, his wine - Don Olegario -achieved an excellent level of quality due to excellent primary materials and a traditional wine-making process.

    The Albariño grapes used for making this wine come from a single 5 hectare vineyard which is located in the privileged valley of O Salnés. Its location, altitude and position, in addition to the characteristics of its soil, produce grapes of unsurpassable quality.

    Today, the original winery has been enlarged and equipped with up-to-date wine-making technology, combining tradition, experience and technology. The third generation of the family continues working to obtain the highest quality and personality in their wines.

    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.
