Pazo Torrado AlbarinoPazo Torrado Albarino is a classic Albarino from Rias Baixas in Galicia, North West Spain. Fresh and lively with floral, citrus fruit on the nose and mineral notes.

Pazo Torrado is made by Terra de Asorei, which is an association of eight top growers who have banded together to produce the wine ‘Pazo Torrado’. With their 173 acres of prime Albariño vineyards and combined experience and technological abilities, they are considered a force in the Galician wine industry.

‘Pazo’ is a name for a ‘manor house’ in Galician. Pazo Torrado is a traditional manor house in the region. It was constructed in the second half of the 18th century, converted into the Galician “Museum of the Wine Routes” and still maintains the components integrated in construction at its origin, such as the garden, the dovecote, the barn, the “patín” (exterior stairway) and the former “lareira” (traditional Galician kitchen).

The vineyards, averaging 15 years old, are located in the Salnés Valley, in the Rias Baixas region, one of the main tourist areas of Galicia, with a privileged climate of Atlantic influence with mild temperatures and abundant rainfall. Pazo Torrado is produced with 100% Albariño grapes carefully harvested after the hot, dry summers of the region, when the grapes reach the perfect point of ripeness.
