Bodegas Senorans is located in Vilanovina, in the valley of the Rio Salnes, east of Pontevedra in the Rías Baixas. The domain was bought in 1979 by Marisol Bueno (President of the Rias Consejo) and her husband Javier Mareque. A lot of money was invested in replanting the vineyards. Everything was cleared and replanted with Albarino grapes, which give such amazing results here. In 1989, considerable investments were again made to completely renew the production means and in this way the newest and most modern means to produce wine were obtained. The first harvest was in 1990. In 1992 the young and promising oenologist Ana Quintela was brought into the firm and since then the wines have been on an annual increase in quality. Pazo de Senorans is always the last to start the harvest. They harvest with a higher sugar content than the other Bodegas. This results in optimal and evenly ripe grapes with ultimately more aromas and flavors and less aggressive acids. Harvesting is only done by hand (which is by the way the only possible way because the vines are planted in pergola shape). and then the grapes are also selected by hand. We work with lower yields than elsewhere in order to obtain more concentration and with a very slow fermentation. This is also the only way to age the wines, because although in Spain people only want to drink the Albariño young, this Pazo de Señorans has a very nice aging potential.

The bodega has recently started marketing older vintages (the 2009 and the 2010) from their cellars under the label: Pazo Senorans Collection. Substantially higher in price, especially since it only concerns a limited number of bottles, but purely to show the wine-loving public that with aging this wine becomes even more special with even better integrated fruit & acid.

Beautiful "full" Albariño, classic, slightly exotic, beautifully aromatic, with soft notes of pear, peach, grapefruit, a hint of honey, minerals and fresh acids. These influences can also be found in the taste. The wine is wonderfully fresh and due to the good ripeness of the fruit, the wine even seems slightly sultry, say mouth-filling. The finish is long, intense and complex. Sweet, fruity and dry taste pattern with a mineral finish. A topper when we talk about the Albariño grape. ! It is not without reason that Ferran Adrià (formerly El Bulli) has chosen this wine as one of his 'open wines' for his new restaurant 'Tickets' in Barcelona.
