Lagar de Pintos is 4th generation family estate, currently run by Marta Castro, who oversees all winemaking duties. Situated just outside the town of Ribadumia, the family home and bodega are located in a pazo, or traditional Galician manor house. The estate and cellar date back to the 1870’s, but it wasn’t until the 1950’s that Albariño was planted by Marta’s grandfather. After seeing her two children running amongst the vines, Marta was struck by the need to convert all of her vineyards to organic farming, and has been a pioneer on this front in Rías Baixas, which is known for more industrial farming and liberal use of chemicals.

Tasting NotesEverything I want my Albarino to be. This is racy, acid driven, clean and profound. Green apple, lemon, white flower on the nose. The palate is citrus driven on the forefront with a little salinity due to the close proximity of the vineyards to the Atlantic.
