RIAS BAIXAS´s regions), in the most Southern part of GALICIA, in the North-West corner of Spain, just a step away from the river Miño, in the borderline with Portugal. We believe that the Albariño wine has, thanks to its acidity, degree and aromas, a wasted potential of guard and development in the bottle. Thus, the idea of making an albariño quality likeness of the great French and German whites.
We only had a premise: not do what others do, not make another young white to consume cold and fast, like a soda.
While thinking about how to make an different Albariño, more complex, with a wider profile of tasting, pairs with a broader range of foods, we looked to the past, to a time previous to stainless steel, when traditional farmers used wood casks. Demanding the personality above trends, and as a result of to pamper the vineyard and to combine tradition and modern enology, our wines ANGEL SEQUEIROS, ALBARIÑO FOUDRE, and ANGEL SEQUEIROS, ALBARIÑO LIAS were born. We are convinced that they are richer and more complex, incorporating creamy notes and a long finish, while maintaining the identity of the fruit. IT´S ALBARIÑO… BUT NOT AS YOU KNOW IT.
