Galicia \\ Spain
Pazo de Villarei was founded in 1993, making it one of the oldest cellars in the Rías Baixas region. Their Rosal vineyard is the largest private single holding of Albariño in Galicia, covering more than 100 hectares. We love their wines from the Val do Salnés, the westernmost, coolest part of Rías Baixas.
Villarei is partially barrel-fermented and aged on the lees for six months. It's a richer wine, sapidly salty, with aromatic tropical fruits and a rock-hard mineral core.
