Bodegas Zarate is among the oldest of family growers of Albariño grapes in Galicia, with their first release in 1950. This tiny farm with very old vines and single vineyard releases is the most eclectic and terroir-driven estate in Galicia. Ernesto Zarate was one of the pioneers in the production of Albariño in the 1950s. Today Eulogio Pomares Botana is equally dedicated to the Albariño variety and the estate’s century-old vineyards, expressing the character of each vineyard in the wines.

At nearly 120 years old, the vineyard El Palomar is the oldest documented vineyard in the Rias Baixas. The estate is comprised of 11 vineyards located in the villages of Sisán and Padrenda which lie in the Salnés Valley (the northwest subzone of Rias Baixas). All of the family vineyards are planted with Albariño.
