  • Pazo Torrado

Pazo Torrado is a 100% Albariño wine. Produced according to the traditional winemaking procedures of the Salnés Valley, in the Rías Baixas area (Galicia).

Pazo’ is a name for a ‘manor house’ in Galician. Pazo Torrado was constructed in the second half of the 18th century and it still maintains the original structure and the beautiful gardens. Pazo Torrado, is in Cambados, where every summer since 1953 awards are bestowed on the finest Albariño wines within the framework of the Albariño Festival. This is our way of honouring the efforts of those who have internationalized this Galician wine.

It’s the Albariño that we all know and love: fruity, tasty and palatable.

Vinification: Pazo Torrado is produced with 100% Albariño grapes carefully harvested in 44lb cases after the hot, dry summers of the region, when the grapes reach the perfect point of ripeness. The grapes are destemmed and crushed and then passed to the pneumatic press, then the must goes into a tank to decant forone day, after that time the clean juice bound for fermentation in stainless steel tanks (65°F) is filtered with a vacuum filter.
