The origins of Pazo de Barrantes go back to the early 16th century and since then it has been linked to the Cebrián-Sagarriga family - yes, the same family as Marques de Murrieta. At Pazo de Barrantes they have embraced a new challenge as a tribute to one of the world's most extraordinary grape varieties, the Albariño and from September 2021 the new Pazo de Barrantes will hit the market. Incomparable to the previous version. The wine has matured for 2 years (more than a year longer than the previous version), had a light wood age, so everything Sur lie on its lees and the selection has also been completely changed.

It all starts with the unique terroir with its own 12 hectare vineyard in the heart of the Salnes Valley. Blessed with a unique microclimate, it benefits daily from the hard work and care, expertise, and passion and skill of the family. More than 10 people benefit from this new project, starting with the careful care of the vineyards to ensure optimal health and quality. of the grapes. They have seriously reduced yields and made an extensive selection of grapes, both in the vineyards and when they reach the winery. Using a slow, gradual ripening process with very strict quality parameters, we select the best juice that is suitable for aging. In fact, the winery only handles the high-quality raw material (the grapes) with great care and minimal intervention takes place. It gets all the time. As a result, 2019 vintage has been reduced significantly (more than 40% less), producing only 95,097 bottles, all of which are now also numbered.

By controlling the fermentation temperature in the stainless steel tanks, we can slow down the fermentation and obtain more purity and aromatic intensity. After two months of contact with the lees, the wine takes on texture, while seven months of rest in the tank improves balance and harmony. A new ingredient has also been added: wood for a small part of the wine. About 15%, it is aged in acacia barrels, adding volume, complexity and depth. Finally, the bottle aging process has been extended to: more than a year and a half, giving this wine the opportunity to become fully defined, balanced and express its incredible potential. The finishing touch to the project is the new packaging that best expresses the personality of the new Pazo Barrantes, opting for a traditional Burgundy bottle with a new label printed on heavyweight, waterproof cotton paper mimicking artisanal printing techniques. The label shows the winery seen from the vineyard. After 30 years, the new Barrantens will be christened the Gran Vino Pazo de Barrantes 2019.
