In our quest to explore, in 2014 we began a journey in search of the areas with the greatest potential for white wines in Spain. Raul Acha, technical director, and Richi Arabarri, our CEO, put their eyes on the north, in those D. O. S that stand out for their freshness, because they are strongly influenced by the Atlantic climate.
For the Atlantis collection select four small regions with little international projection but many history and ample ability to compete with the best white areas in the world: Rias Baixas, Ribeiro, Valdeorras and Txakoli of Alava. There we produce the four wines of Atlantis with native varieties: Albariño, Treixadura, Godello and Hondarrabi Zuri.
The Godello De Valdeorras was for us the discovery of one of the most interesting varieties of Spain in white to produce a more complex and structured wine, more gastronomic.
