Lagar de Besada is a boutique family-run winery, owned and operated by a husband and wife duo who met at winemaking school and are both accomplished winemakers contributing to the production of these beautifulwines. Lagar de Besada is located in the Rias Baixas region of Spain, in Galicia - an area in the northwest corner of Spain that prides itself for the world’s most exceptional and purest Albariño grapes.
The vineyard is nestled 3,000 feet above sea level, one of the highest elevation points across all Spanish wine regions. Also unique, the climate in the area is one of great extremity, with hot summers, cold winters, and low rainfall. The vines at Lagar de Besada have built a tolerance to be able to withstand the most difficult conditions, leading to consistently complex and balanced wines. Another attribute of this uniquely picturesque vineyard, the grapevines are meticulously woven around concrete arches that were built in rows above the ground - this is to preserve and protect the vineyards from any possible bacteria or over-soaking of the vines due to frequent rainfall.
