Adegas Gran Vinum

View Winery Website

Adegas Gran Vinum is a family owned winery that started working in 2002. They planted new new vineyards on steep, sandy, south-facing slopes, near the ocean which minimizes temperature swings and extends maturation times giving more spice, saline and fruity varietal character to the finished wines. Soils in the vineyards are enriched in the traditional manner by digging in shells of local mollusks.

They exclusively grow Albariño, this internationally recognized, high quality grapes of Galicia. It is an intensely aromatic grape with thick skins uniquely suited to the cool, damp growing conditions typical of the area. In addition, it maintains excellent natural acidity leading to fresh, balanced wines.
