"Lusco" Albariño DO
Rías Baixas DO - Spain
Pazos de Lusco is One of the most renowned wineries in Rías Baixas D.O.. Located in the heart of the region, 2 kilometres from the Portuguese border in the sub-region of Condado de Tea, the wines are characteristic of this inland region, typically richer and fuller than their coastal counterparts. At the heart of the estate lies the majestic manor house, known as Pazo Piñeiro, which dates back to the 16th century. Surrounding the Pazo are 5 hectares of vineyards, with vines trained in the traditional Pergola system; on high trellises to maximize sun exposure and increase air circulation to maintain perfectly healthy bunches of grapes.
