Located in the Northwest corner of the country this coastal part of Spain lies between the ocean and mountains which creates a unique climate that is much cooler and rainier than the rest of the country. This area often referred to as “”Green Spain”” and is well known for producing exceptional white wines, with a specific focus on the Albariño grape.

Quality is of paramount importance for Marqués de Valor Albariño. The vineyards are optimally located in the hillsides overlooking the Miño river and are comprised primarily of granite, which gives the wine an exceptional minerality and distinct focus. Harvest is always carried out entirely by hand and a rigorous selection process ensures that only the highest quality grapes are included in the wine. The wines are allowed to age on lees for 4 to 5 months, a step to increase the quality of the wine that many wineries do not take the time to execute. This time allows for increased concentration and richness to develop in the final wines. The final product is a complex and interesting Albariño of the highest quality.
