ABOUT

Alberto Nanclares began cultivating the albariño vineyard that surrounds his farmhouse in 1993, in the region of Salnes, Rías Baixas. He became a wine producer officially a few years later with the acquisition of new parcels in the area, before founding Nanclares y Prieto Viticultores in 2015 with Silvia Prieto. Today they produce a unique range of wines from 7.81 hectares in total. 2.07 hectares are owned vineyards, cultivated organically. The wines are crafted with minimal intervention and are aged on their lees for added complexity and textural nuances. The vineyards are dispersed over different sub-regions of Rías Baixas (Cambados, Meis, Sanxenxo, Meaño, Barro, Ribadumia, Portas), expressing different styles of albariño and other local varieties according to variations in soil and microclimate. Some vines are up to 100 years old, planted on a rich topsoil of sandy clay over granitic rock. Moderate use of sulphur along with bottling without clarification allows varietal character to express itself fully. Demand for Alberto and Silvia’s wines continue to soar year on year, all are available in Barcelona through Caskadia.
