“Wine, like people, the closer to the origin,, the closer to truth” Since 1928
first vintage 1928
Albariño de Fefiñanes is our flagship wine. In line with the century-old winemaking tradition at Fefiñanes Manor House, jeweller, master craftsman in jet and designer Enrique Mayer based in Santiago de Compostela, designed the label back in 1928. A year later, in 1929, our wine won an award at the 1929-30 edition of the Barcelona International Trade Fair. A truly pioneering wine.
1583 saw the birth of the man destined to become the first Viscount of Fefiñanes. A hero of his day, dedicated to the service of King and country who, born in Fefiñanes, continued with the building work begun by his ancestors, giving the manor house its current appearance.
1583 Albariño de Fefiñanes is fermented in French oak barrels, followed by a brief three months’ aging on lees before being rounded off in steel vats.
first vintage 2002
Albariño de Fefiñanes III Año is the result of our quest for excellence. After the primary fermentation process in stainless steel vats and an extended aging process on lees, followed by a lengthy resting period, the resulting wine is a magnificent example of Albariño wines’ aging potential.
Round, densely textured and gentle, although still fresh, it is almost unctuous and has the backbone and verve to ensure spectacular development in bottle.
first vintage 2013
We selected the winery’s finest must of 2013, which, following primary fermentation in stainless steel, was aged extensively in vats. Following filtering, it was left to settle for a lengthy period lasting almost two years. It was then oxidised in 500 litre barrels before bottling on Saint Andrew’s day 2016. It boasts a refined Albariño bouquet comprising ripe fruit and citrus, compote and honey hints. Sharply acidic, yet delightfully unctuous evolving into a generous warmth. A wine for keeping capable of stopping time in its tracks.
Palacio de Fefiñanes has been involved in wine since the 17th century. This culture has been settling the historical knowledge of the wine-producing process through generations in the family.
