The albariña grape
The essence of the Salnés Valley
The GRANBAZÁN plantation is located in the heart of the Salnés Valley, on a farm of 14 hectares of vineyards.
A constant thing in the project has been to put the maximum effort in the plantation and the care of the vineyard, selecting the best grape from the moment of the collection. In addition to the 14 hectares around the winery, Granbazán has 3 hectares in Covas del Lobos.
The system chosen is the “Parra”, typical of wet and rainy areas. In this place, the leaves and clusters expand looking for light in a plane parallel to the ground at 1.80 m high, which facilitate aeration, so the vineyard treatments are lowered and the maturation is harmonious. We capture the essence of the Salnés Valley: 100% albariño, the fruit from the best clonal selection of Galicia with small grape berries, and Atlantic influence, at 100 m. above sea level, in granitic soil, and with nascent solar orientation and deep roots.
Granbazán range of wines is very complete and work relentlessly to develop new projects. We always try to identify the potential of each micro-plot and make minimalist vinifications to respect the terroir.
