Pazo de San Mauro

Pazo de San Mauro, one of the most historic European wineries, was built in 1591. Located in the Condado de Tea region of Rias Baixas, the estate owned vineyards are planted in terraces, forming a natural amphitheater, which slope down to reach the banks of the river Miño. The vineyards extend on rolling banks of the river Miño, creating a natural amphitheater and bathed in extraordinary sunlight during the midday hours.
The vines are planted on trellises so that the fruit, of very restricted production, grows in optimum conditions, reaching its peak quality.
An albariño pronounced on the nose, denoting a strong varietal character. Very aromatic. Very fruity on the palate with citric, floral and nutty notes. Long and intense finish.

Pazo de San Mauro

Pazo de San Mauro, one of the most historic European wineries, was built in 1591. Located in the Condado de Tea region of Rias Baixas, the estate owned vineyards are planted in terraces, forming a natural amphitheater, which slope down to reach the banks of the river Miño. The vineyards extend on rolling banks of the river Miño, creating a natural amphitheater and bathed in extraordinary sunlight during the midday hours.

The vines are planted on trellises so that the fruit, of very restricted production, grows in optimum conditions, reaching its peak quality.
The vineyards enjoy an exceptional microclimate in the most southern and sunniest area of the D.O. Rias Baixas, with long hours of sunshine allowing early ripening and complex structures, and yet retaining the maximum acidity.

Pazo de San Mauro has an idyllic setting, full of legends and mystery, and the perfect environment for the gradual ripening of the Albariño grapes, resulting in a pronounced and aromatic wine.
