Bodegas Viña Nora
The alternative Albariño landscape
Viña Nora is located at the heart of the winemaking region of Condado do Tea, which is bordering Portugal and is the only inland region out of the four that comprise the Designation of Origin Rías Baixas. The special characteristics of this region are its granite soils rich in cobbles and a significantly lower rainfall than the average experienced in the area. This favours an earlier and fuller maturation; therefore, enabling us to extract the variety’s entire potential and provide an absolute expression of the terroir.
The fact that the land boasts the perfect conditions to be able to express the terroir was a defining factor in establishing Viña Nora in this setting. Located on a natural terraced land over River Miño, in the municipality of As Neves, the landscape surrounding the bodega is closely influenced by the river and the sea of vineyards with the typical trellised vines in Rías Baixas. These trellised vines are made up of granite posts that are erected two meters high with the aim of separating the berry from the soil’s humidity and thus protecting it from diseases. In addition, they favour the berry’s full maturation thanks to further sun exposure.
The most peculiar personality in Rías Baixas
The area’s terroir and tradition and their different elements come together to attain a shared goal: to make wines that express the personality of one of the most special areas in Rías Baixas. This is rounded off with a way of working based on small individual yields from each plot of land, which every year helps us learn about the behaviour of the different vineyards and their potential to make our wines.
