Grower Website Eidos de Padrinan Region: Spain - Galicia

Adega Eidos is located in Padriñán parish overlooking Sanxenxo harbor on the southern edge of the Val do Salnés subdistrict at the westernmost, maritime extreme of Rías Baixas.

A total of just over 8ha (20 acres) of old and often ungrafted Albariño vines are planted in 100 separate parcels located amongst the gardens of Sanxenxo. The vineyards have a southernly exposure and are protected from the north winds. “Eidos” are the backyard garden arbors of the traditional Albariño vineyard. Grapes selected from vines averaging 50 years old, with some over 80 and 100 years, are de-stemmed, crushed and macerated under temperature control for maximum aromatic extraction. Natural yeasts are encouraged for a prolonged fermentation. The wines are bottled in April following the vintage after extended contact on the fine lees resulting in richly textured and intense Albariños.  The influence of the salty sea breeze and granitic soils shine through with a mineral finish.
