NEW! This vineyard was established in 1920 by Ernesto Zarate in Galicia’s Rias Baixas. When current winemaker Eulogio Pomares, Ernesto's grandson, took over management of his family’s vineyard he introduced natural viticulture, a seemingly impossible feat in what is perhaps Spain’s coolest and wettest winegrowing region. He started to work organically, abandoning mineral fertilisers. Instead he uses shells from the surrounding coastline which provide the calcium and magnesium the vines need, and don’t get from the acidic soils. He also uses local seaweed as compost. In the cellar he is low intervention and his wines are characterised by their Atlantic freshness and age-worthiness.
