The Amigo Family has cultivated vineyards for many generations and has learned from tradition to develop new concepts and methods. In 2002, the family decided to produce bottled wine, and reburshed an old warehouse that once served to make wine. The vineyard is spread over 12 hectares distributed in small plots or leiros from 50 to 100 years old. The diversity of soils and climatic influences create an ideal environment for the vines so they mature in harmony. The family grows Mencia and Godello grapes, and has recovered ancient vines of Jerez and Doña Blanca. The average annual temperature is 13 º C, rainfall reaching 800 mm/year and average sunshine is 2.200 hours/year. These factors influence the growing of the vines resulting in fresh and fruity wines with mineral character and longevity.
The Viñademoya vineyard is planted with Mencia vines that are more than 100 years old and is considered the largest area of pre-phylloxera vines in the region.
María Abril is produced from Godello vines that are 20-60 years old planted at altitudes of 650-750 meters above sea level.
