The story of 𝗕𝗼𝗱𝗲𝗴𝗮𝘀 𝗖𝗮𝗿𝗯𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗮𝗹 started when the winery founder, Benito Vázquez, planted the now emblematic old vines of Albariño at Finca Carballal. Those first vinifications, together with those of other winemakers, were the ones that demonstrated the enormous quality of the Albariño grape, being Benito the bigger promoter for the constitution of the DO Rías Baixas. The name 7 Cepas honors the seven brothers that are now leading the winery.
The viticulture in here is sustainable: vegetable cover, soils are enriched with organic compost, small yields, good phenolic maturations, spontaneous fermentation… everything in order to reflect, vintage after vintage, an honest picture of their terroir on a specific year.
The soils here are mainly granitic (mineral and sapid character) and sandy (contributing to texture).
Regarding the vinification, there are three fundamental rules: indigenous yeast, fine lees stirring, and malolactic fermentation. All their wines are fermented and left to rest shortly on their fine lees in stainless steel.
