THE POWER IS IN YOUR MIND

SILENCE

Pure air from the Atlantic flows into the Arousa estuary and caresses the Armenteira hills.
The San Ero winery is located in a place where peace reigns, where only the sounds of nature mark the passing of time.

A few yards from the winery a path awaits you.

THIS IS THE “RUTA DA PEDRA E DA AUGA”,
THE “STONE AND WATER TRAIL”, THE PATH THAT WILL GUIDE YOU ON YOUR JOURNEY

It was in 1175 that Ero, the founder and abbot of the monastery of Armenteira, tired of the world’s indecency, set out to walk in the woods. He came to the river bank and beside a leafy tree he closed his eyes, asking the holy virgin Mary to grant him the privilege of knowing paradise.

 

His request was followed by the beautiful song of a bird that miraculously left him enchanted for 300 years.

When Ero awoke from his experience and returned to the monastery he was able to understand how wonderful what had happened there was.

 

The legend, which has its origin in canticle no. 103 to holy Mary written in the 13th century by Alfonso X, the Wise, ends by describing the amazement of the monks present: ¡Nunca tan fran maravilla / como Deus por este fez / polo rogo de sa madre / Virgen santa de gran prez!

DISCIPLES OF THE VINE

THE ABAL VARELA FAMILY

We follow a daily ritual with a single goal, to make every year’s vintage the best.
The output of the winery depends on every harvest. We’re independent,
our production is limited and we like it like that.
Our fervour knows no limits, wine-growing is our life. We project the effort, know-how and passion of every member of our family unit
into making a wine that surpasses tradition to raise it to a level that could only be imagined previously.
We combine miracle, fantasy, mystery and the reality of a job well done.

CREATING THE MAGIC

OUR VINEYARDS

Our 8 hectares of vineyards, all of them producing the Albariño grape variety, spread along the Salnés valley, at an average of 150 metres above sea level.
Our grapes reach up to heaven, 180cm high using the ideal system of trellising to ensure excellent aeration and development of the vines.
The nutrients in our vineyards come from soil with a sandy texture, siliceous with a low clay content, slightly acid and permeable.

IT CAN’T BE A COINCIDENCE

MICROCLIMATE

Unlike the Atlantic climate that predominates in the rest of the Rías Baixas wine region, in the valley of O Salnés we have our own microclimate.
This is characterised by wet winters, mild springs and dry summers moderated by the closeness of the Atlantic and the mountains protecting the valley.

OUR OWN PARADAISE

WINE-GROWING

Day-to-day care of our vines, pruning adapted to meet different needs, grape picking by hand, the most honest and advanced winemaking processes.
We are a family winery, and this might be why we can pamper every vine individually, seeking its maximum expression in terms of taste and aroma.
Our vineyards are a faithful reflection of our ancestors and of the land that saw us grow up.

LIVE THE EXPERIENCE

 

If you try you can manage it.

Patience was Saint Ero’s virtue,

a miracle his reward.

 

Wise decision.

A 300-year journey awaits you.

The destination, your own paradise.
