our vineyards

The vineyards of Mar de Envero are located in the western part of the Ribeira do Ulla subzone, primarily on the northern side of the river with a south or southeast orientation. Albariño is the most commonly grown grape variety, but we have also recently planted other native varieties. This decision was made because our field technician Manyo Moreira has a vision that goes beyond just white varieties.

The plots have shallow soils with the presence of xabre, which is a coarse granite sand decomposed by the passage of time. The vineyards are situated at altitudes between 140 and 175 meters above sea level, have low pH, and poor water retention power.

Martingos is our most iconic estate as it was the first one where we decided to build the winery. One of its most notable features is the presence of gneiss rock, a mineral of metamorphic origin that is much less common in this area than granite, which is of magmatic origin.

We maintain our plots in a non-till regime and encourage the development of natural vegetation cover. We do not use herbicides and aim to reduce treatments in the vineyards to promote the development of biodiversity. Our goal is to leave a more respectful inheritance to those who come after us.
