PRODUCER: Declared the International Garden of Excellence in 2014, the Pazo de Rubianes is situated in the Ría (estuary) of Arousa (Pontevedra) and owned by one of the three officially recognized lords in Spain.
The winery is surrounded by a garden focused on the conservation of unique biodiversity, a singular wooded border, and a 25-hectar Albariño vineyard.
The origens of the Pazo (Palace) of Rubianes date back to the Middle Ages, when in 1411 the Caamaño family, owners of the House of Noia, established their ﬁrst residence in the 12th century tower that they owned in Rubianes. 30 years later, in 1441, D. García Caamaño founded the village of García Caamaño, known today as Vilagarcía. It was King Felipe II, at the beginning of the 16th century, who gave the Caamaño family the nobel title of Señorío de Rubianes with Grandeur of Spain, for their service to the Crown, who was Marquess of Vilagarcía.
Pazo de Rubianes historic, cultural, botanical and viticultural contents are its main intrinsic characteristics for surprising its visitors.
Of the French Chateaux style, the Pazo´s 25 hectars of land are surrounded by vineyards. Granite soil, atlantic climate, southwest orientation and their Albariño old vines (+50 years old) create exceptional conditions for the elaboration of Pazo de Ribianes wines.
The grapes are cultivated between camellias and in the environment of the historic garden of Galicia which gives them their unmistakable character. Bathed in the Rías Baixas´ own Atlantic climate, each year the Agronomic Engineer of the Pazo (Guillermo Hermo) and his team complete meticulous work on the ﬁelds to select the plot.
