Winery Profile: Bodegas Vionta

Winemaker: Roger Fernandez

Wine Characteristics:
Albariño offers a very good balance of acidity and body. Having a grape that is so small and delicate presents a great aromatic richness. Due to this complexity, our wines require a small rest in deposit and/or bottle before going to market. Beginning in February, you can enjoy the next vintage. The golden hue of the grapes will make the wines have a little color.

On Winemaking:
Our process is vibrant, cheerful and with personality. It is a good representation of the traditional Albariño. Since the Albariño grape is one of the most expressive, our winemaking respects the virtues of the variety. Only in one of my wines, specifically, the Vionta, do I perform a maceration process on its own lees to further structure it and to work with higher rates that will allow us to lengthen its lifespan.

Favorite Place in Galicia:
The Chapel of Our Lady of the Spear. It is located very close to the entrance of the Ría de Arousa, adjoining the famous beach of La Lanza. This small chapel, made of granite, is located by the sea and surrounded by a small wall that protects the onslaught of waves that hit it. This is a vivid image of the bravery of the sea – a true spectacle of nature.
