‘Enticing and pleasantly aromatic, with hints of fresh pineapple, orchard fruit, orange blossom and citrus. Soft upon entry, with well-integrated acidity and good structure, the Fillaboa Albariño is fresh, fruity and round, making it the perfect accompaniment to seafood, spicy dishes and cream-based sauces.’
Bodegas Fillaboa is owned by the Masaveu family, which traces its winemaking history back to the 14th century. The family re-invested itself in Galician wine production, culminating with the purchase of Bodegas Fillaboa in Salvaterra de Miño in 1988. Today Fillaboa is home to a tasting facility and formidable art collection housed in a 15th century Romanesque castle near the River Miño that forms the border between Spain and northern Portugal.
This wine is crafted from 100% estate-grown Albariño that is cultivated on our historic property located only 150 feet from the Portuguese border and 22 miles from the Atlantic Ocean. A famously windy and rainy part of Spain, we train our vines in the traditional en parra, or pergola trellising system, to reach a height of 6-7 feet, thereby decreasing botrytis and increasing wind flow in our vineyards. Our granite-rich soil and the cool influence of the nearby Atlantic Ocean make the Fillaboa estate a privileged place for vine-growing.
