The Martinez family has owned a bar in Rías Baixas since 1987, which keeps the family deeply connected to consumers and their changing tastes in wine. Prior to opening the winery, the Martinez family would make the wine sold at their bar in Pablo’s grandparents’ house from grapes grown in their backyard.
In 1994, Pablo Martinez began his winery in the plot behind his family’s bar. The plot was previously full of corn and meadows, with a small amount of grapes that varied with Albariño, Caino, Espadeiro, and hybrid vines. When Pablo began his winery, he replanted the property with vines in a way that used the best plots strategically, focusing heavily on the Albariño grapes. He used the same vines that had always been there while taking cuttings from these vines and planting to expand the vineyard.
Pablo works to make wines of high quality and strong personality, while respecting the characteristics of the Albariño variety and the tradition of the Rías Baixas area. Pablo only produces about 40,000 litres of wine per year, with the main focus of producing wine for his bar and using what his has left to sell to the national and international markets.
