Mar de Frades Facts

Mar de Frades

Mar de Frades is a Galacian phrase for “Sea of the Friars.”

The Rías Baixas D.O. is located in Galicia, in the verdant Northwestern part of Spain, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

Albariño is the finest grape variety in Rías Baixas and accounts for 90% of all the vineyards in the D.O.

Mar de Frades is 100% Albariño from Val do Salnes, Rías Baixas’ best sub-appellation.

A state-of-the-art winery was completed in 2006.

  • Current production is 37,500 cases per year

Artisanally grown and made, only hand-picked and hand-sorted fruit is used.

Made from 100% free run juice, Mar de Frades is the “best of the best.”

Mar de Frades is cold-fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks.

Innovative thermographic labeling; the blue galleon appears on the label when the wine is properly chilled.
