Bodegas Monte Pío
Location: Rias Baixas, Galicia, Spain
"The white wines of northwest Spain crackle with clean flavours and food-friendly acidity." - Michael Schachner, The Wine Enthusiast
Bodegas Monte Pío is a family-run winery located in Ribadumia in Galicia. It was established in 1979 and since 2014 has been under the stewardship of Pablo Martinez, the current oenologist and vineyard manager. The average age of the vineyards is 25 years and they are predominantly made up of Albariño, the main grape of the Rias Baixas region.
An atypical Spanish wine region, Rias Baixas experiences higher rainfall and cooler temperatures than many other parts of the country which allows the fresh, crisp Albariño grape for which it has become famous to thrive.
