  • Vineyard Profile

    • In old country houses known as “pazos”, surrounded by forests and vineyards, Galician witches conjured up spirits through magic and dance. And so the sap, the lifeblood, coursed through the vines, filling them with vitality. Like the Albariño grapes that give birth to this wine.

    • Appellation: DO Rías Baixas
  • Vintage Report

    • The 2022 harvest was one of the earliest in recent memory, brought forward by 12 days compared to the previous year. The winter was extremely dry and warm, followed by an equally dry spring with episodes of nighttime frost, one of which affected part of the vineyard and
      brought down yields. There was no rainfall in the summer, and the intense heat increased the pace of fruit maturation. After the three summer months, rainfall during the first week of September brought up yields somewhat and helped regulate both the alcohol and acidity of the wines. The grapes were in excellent condition.

  • Pazo das Bruxas, DO Rías Baixas — 2022 – Wine Enthusiast – 92 Points

    "Aromas of pineapple and dried sage leaf pave the way for refreshing flavors of grapefruit, pineapple, passion fruit and orange blossom. This nicely textured wine is bright from first sip through the finish."

  • Pazo das Bruxas, DO Rías Baixas — 2022 – James Suckling – 90 Points

    "Oyster shells, fresh lemon zest, fennel and some blanched almonds to the nose. Crisp and medium-bodied on the palate with fresh acidity and some grapefruit skin in the finish."
