About Viña Nora
Bodegas Viña Nora is located in the heart of the Condado do Tea wine region, a region bordering Portugal and the only inland region of the four that makeup Rías Baixas.
This unique location, with granitic soils rich in boulders and with much lower rainfall than the average for the area, favors an earlier and more complete ripening of the grapes, which allows greater extraction of the full potential of the variety and an absolute expression of the land and its landscape in the wine.
The work with the Albariño variety in conditions as unique as the area in which the Viña Nora vineyards are located allows and the exclusive nature of the project conceived for limited productions, making the winery fit perfectly into the group’s philosophy Avanteselecta whose central philosophy is to work with native varieties in the main wine-producing areas of Spain and in locations capable of offering exceptional results. Thus, the winery joined the group in 2002 and since then has produced three of the great Albariños that are made in Rias Baixas.
Viña Nora owns 16 hectares of vineyards, planted on soils with a mixture of alluvial gravel and granite decomposition. These floors with rounded stones act as radiators that regulate the heat of the day to prevent excessive humidity at night and allow better maturation. The winery also protects the production of a hundred small winegrowers, distributed among the counties of Condado do Tea, Val do Salnés and Ribeira do Ulla.
The vineyards of Viña Nora have an average age of 25 years and are planted on natural terraces that fall into the gorges of the Miño River, a capricious orography that requires each harvest to be carried out completely manually.
The vineyards grow in the typical vineyards with granite poles, so characteristic of the Rias Baixas area. These vines are two meters high, which separates the grape from the humidity of the soil and protects it from fungal diseases. They also favor a complete maturation of the grapes by allowing them to remain sunny.
