The final stretch of the River Ulla and the Terras de Iria’s characteristic granite form the cradle of the Pazo de Arretén winery, where we take great care to make wine belonging to the Rías Baixas designation of origin (Ribeira do Ulla subzone) from Albariño grapes.
Our vineyards occupy 6.5 hectares of the historic Pazo de Arretén’s estate; the building was erected by Bermúdez de Castro in the 16th century and is the birthplace of the great Galician writer Rosalía de Castro.
The proximity to the River Ulla and the short distance that separates us from the Ría de Arousa coast give our grapes a special quality, making them one of the most recognisable in Galicia; along with lamprey and Herbón peppers, they make Padrón a renowned food and wine destination.
Discover the history and flavour of Pazo de Arretén, an experience that you will never forget.
Very close to the ancient doors of Roman sailors, we make this wine using traditional methods: we handpick the grapes and select them on our plot of land, devoting time and talent to pick only the best bunches
A jewel raised in the soft land of the Pazo de Arretén. This white is a fresh, balanced and elegant wine. All these qualities are born from the natural point of acidity so typical of Galicia, which makes Iriensis a liquid example of the virtues of our country.
In order to make our black gem, we follow the traditional process that we have adopted as our working method. We select the grapes in the vineyard and, after destemming them, put them into a stainless steel deposit, where they ferment at a controlled temperature.
The white version of the D'Eli is carefully selected in the vineyard. After collecting the grapes, they are destemmed and pressed.
Enjoying a food and wine experience in Pazo de Arretén is the perfect activity for rounding off your group or company’s trip or event.
