Adegas Valmiñor was established in 1997, in the southernmost region of the Rías Baixas DO, O Rosal where the fashionable Albariño grape flourishes. Award winning winemaker Christina Mantilla combines a minimal intervention approach in a beautifully equipped modern winery to give a true expression of the local terroir.

There are thirty-four hectares of vines with an average age of thirty-five years, planted in four vineyards. Trained on a combination of wires and the traditional pergolas, the intensely mineral soils comprise metamorphic schist, alluvial clay and granitic sand strewn with pebbles. Grapes are hand-harvested into twenty-kilo baskets and then hand-sorted in the cellar.

The grapes were cold-macerated for eight hours at 10ºC before cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine spent five to six months on its lees before cold stabilisation, filtration and bottling.
