Bodegas Martín Códax was founded in 1986 and was named for a renowned Galician troubadour whose medieval poems, the oldest in the Galician-Portuguese language, have survived to the present.
The winery was founded in 1986 as a cooperative with about 50 local grape growers in Galicia in the northwest corner of Spain. From the first vintage, the wines were very well-received, and the winery expanded to meet the expectations of wine lovers at home and abroad. Today, Martín Códax oversees more than 1,400 small vineyard parcels farmed by 550 families in the Rías Baixas region around the town of Cambados. Martín Códax maintains its quality through continuous investment in research, innovation, and talented, creative people. The wines of Martín Códax have won international acclaim and are sold in over 40 countries around the world, where they have come to symbolize Galician culture at its finest.
