Pazo das Bruxas

A secret revealed

Pazo das Bruxas is a wine that pays homages to the folklore and nature of Galicia, a land of immense forests inhabited by mystic and magical beings like the Galician witches who lived in old country houses (pazos) where they would connect with nature through dances and spells to obtain the best fruits from it. Just like the albariño stock that gives life to Pazo das Bruxas.

Appellation of Origin Rías Baixas is a territory of exceptional beaches, diverse landscapes, numerous vineyards and a rich cultural and historic heritage. Pazo das Bruxas is a noble wine that holds all of this Galician idiosyncrasy.

DO Rías Baixas

Appellation of Origin Rías Baixas is divided into five sub-areas: O Rosal, Condado de Tea, Soutomaior, Val do Salnes and Ribeira do Ulloa. 

“Pazo das Bruxas” is mostly produced with grapes from the O’Rosal area, in combination with grapes from Salnés. Both are known for their markedly Atlantic climates which are influenced by their proximity to the ocean with mild winters and high precipitation. Spring comes early and that is when there is the highest risk of frosts, the further away from the coast a vineyard is. In the summer, the anticyclone situation of the Azores means precipitation is scarce or null and the temperatures are mild.  Autumn is the rainiest season of the year.

The soil is sandy with great water drainage and granite rocks in the structure which prevent water retention.  The Salnés area is colder than O’Rosal, which leads to slightly slower ripening and wines that are more acidic.
