Pazo das Bruxas
A SECRET REVEALED
Pazo Das Bruxas pays homage to the folklore and landscape of Galicia. It tells the tale of the Galician witches said to have gathered in the woods, which surrounded some pazos or manor houses, to conjure up spirits with their dances and spells. Nourished by their energy, the sap or lifeblood then coursed through the vines, in the same way the Albariño grapes give life to this wine today.
In 2012, the fifth generation of Familia Torres launched a winegrowing project in Rías Baixas and made its first Albariño with the name of Pazo das Bruxas. This wine is made from grapes grown primarily in the subzone of the Valle de Salnés.
DO Rías Baixas
DO Rías Baixas is a small winemaking region in Galicia, northwest Spain and is shaped by its small-scale farming tradition. More specifically, it is located in the province of Pontevedra and a small area of A Coruña and is divided into five subzones: Val do Salnés, O Rosal, Ribeira do Ulla, Condado do Tea, and Soutomaior. One of the DO’s determining factors is its commitment to indigenous varieties, particularly Albariño, which resists the region’s characteristic adverse climate conditions to produce wines with authentic quality and sense of place marked by their distinctive Atlantic character.
