22 March, 2016

Gonzales Byass has acquires a winery in Rías Baixas called Pazos de Lusco.

The acquisition means the Gonzales Byass ‘Family of Wine’ is now present in nine of the most important Spanish wine producing regions: Rioja, Jerez, Cadiz, Cavas, Penedes. Rueda, Somontano, Castilla and Rías Baixas.

Pazos de Lusco, located in Salvaterra do Miño, is renowned for its high quality wines within the D.O. Rías Baixas. The vineyard is planted using the traditional pergola system, which allows the Albariño grape to thrive in this unique climate. The winery is located in the heart of the vineyard, an unusual setting in a region where small farms abound. The bodega also boasts a beautiful sixteenth-century manor consisting of a large house, chapel, stables and a small lodge.

The Lusco and Pazo Piñeiro Albariños, made at the winery, represent the true essence of this particular Galician terroir, according to Gonzales Byass.

Rías Baixas is one of the most recognized white wine producing Spanish D.O.’s globally and within the Spanish domestic market.
