Pedralonga Winery
Collection of winemakers. The Alfonso family has been making wine
trough out generations in Val do Umia, preserving writings from the early
xx century in where they already mention the harvests, the crops and the
wine making trough the intensive and careful work of the vineyards. The
present winery was founded in 1997, the work is know professional but
the philosophy remains the same of our ancestors. The work is still done
with traditional methods and biodynamic technics that respect the moon
periods allowing to obtain wine must that need no chemical correction
neither filtering.
The importance of the ocean. The Pedralonga vineyards are deeply
influenced by the atlantic climate, that provides good temperatures and
long rain periods during large part of the year perfectly suited for the
Alvariño grapes. The vineyards root on loam soil at the bottom of mount
Xiabre, high terrains oriented from north to south allowing a perfect
insolation that helps growth and health.
Mineral expresion. At Pedralonga we make wines with personality.
Singular Albariños and red wines that stand out for their balanced acidity
and mineral taste from the granite soils of our terroir.

Responsible Viticulture
Commitment. We gather the values of manual grape harvest, absence
of pesticides and mineral fertilization with careful farming from the xxi
century cellars. Our wines nurture the unique personality of small wine
producers which control each and every production detail. A philosophy
that goes for quality and the creation of non standard wine musts.
Respect for the vineyard. The result is our wines, made with
biodynamic technics, respectful with the environment where taste and
aroma come directly from the soils quality, the grapes nurturing and wise
wine making.
Following the moon. During the waning crescent moon phase the
vineyard enters in its sleeping stage. This is the moment to sanitate and
prune the non productive parts. It is also time to decant only in clear days
with out mist or rain that can influence the wines stability. Reaching the
waxing crescent phase the vineyard expands and grows. At this point the
production pruning gives the branches the energy need for a good fruit.

Albariño Pedralonga
Hallmark. The winery’s true standard. Pure distilled granite, bathed by
the atlantic rain and the characteristic sun of a south facing vineyard,
tuned by it’s malolactic fermentation.
Giving it time. At Pedralonga we give time to wine. Following the
grape harvest we let it settle for months in the cellar waiting until July for
bottling, when its perfectly stable. After bottled the wine evolves so well
that stays alive for years.
Genuine Albariño. The malolactic maceration on lees, without yeast,
results in a flawless Albariño which expresses the grape’s full personality.
“All this effort has been rewarded with a very particular and
personal Albariño. It makes me proud to see it in restaurants
in Japan, Sweden or United States”

Albariño Barrica
Fruited and spiced. Not always wood and fruit work well in a white
wine, but when they do, the oak strengths the grapes primary aromas
with toasted and spiced nuances. This happens with this Albariño, where
the cask blends with the wine without concealing it’s personality.
Longevity. A pearl that emerged from six lost hectares in a maze of
small vineyards. A full and complex white wine that goes with the best
gastronomy, able to evolve bottled and to stay alive for several years.
Oak in a right measure. The french oak Allier enriches the wine’s
aromatic and gustatory power giving it a longer life once bottled. The
Allier oak has a very fine grain that favours very persistent aftertaste.
“With singular personality, is the antithesis of globalized
wines that tend to taste-a-like”

Albariño Vendetta
Limited edition. The few bottles produced, reflect the exclusivity of
this wine that dares to explore the gustatory and aromatic limits of an
Albariño without resorting to chemical corrections.
The reinvented Albariño. The challenge was to create something
new with the same raw material and winery work process. From this
was born an exclusive product, a singular Albariño different from all
others.
Tree grape types in one cluster. What happens when you put
together a wine producer, a chef and a designer in the creation of a
wine? Happens that this creative tandem of tree end up inventing a
very non-orthodox Alvariño with a gasp of excellency, where its unusual
labelling already unveils part of its personality.
“Having a bottle of Vendetta in the wine menu is truly a
luxury for any restaurant. The challenge is to get one bottle
for your cellar from the few that are produced every year”

Tinto DoUmia
Unveiling Rías Baixas. The search for a blend worthy of the
Designation of Origin has resulted in the creation of a fresh taste wine,
fruited and with character. An easy wine that pleases both amateur and
professional wine tasters.
The red grape makes its way in. Red wines are one percent of
all Rias Baixas production. “DoUmia” is the ambassador that opens de
doors to quality red wine in the Albariño universe.
In front with Mencía. The nobility of red grapes, Caiño and
Espadeiro, provides wine with a singular floral and acid characteristic.
The Mencía grapes goes along perfectly with the ones mentioned
before and adds the structure that finishes the wine.
“We wanted to claim the expressivity of those fruited
taste red wines that when drank fresh satisfy us as
much as the most complex broths”
