Overview

Sal da Terra is comprised of wine from two of Eulogio’s own parcels. The first, Francón, is immediately adjacent to the Ría de Arousa which gives it direct Atlantic influence. The soils are sandy granite and red clay with 35-year-old vines trained on pergolas. The second site is named Carballoso which is located further inland at an elevation of 250m. The soils here are granitic and ferrous sands.

After tasting their inaugural release, Jancis Robinson remarked:

Intense and rich – really quite outstanding as an Albariño in fact! There is real breadth to its impact on the palate (unlike so many Albariños) and a distinct sea-breeze quality to it, with impressive grip on the end. I shared what was left in the bottle with some friends and it was gone in no time. This is a wine to make me fall in love with Albariño again.

We couldn’t agree more.
