Mar de Frades lies in the heartland of Rias Baixas, Salnes. This is the truest expression of the terrior, nestled upon the Galician coast where the seawater washes up on the shore finds its way through the breeze onto the skins of Albarino grapes giving its notorious salinity. Paula Fandino is one of Galicias gifts and crafts incredible wines from these vines that they try and maintain with zero sulfur additions. Due to the very marginal climate (where many of the world's greatestwines are created) this is not always possible, but it is certainly at the centre of the wineries ethos in the vineyard. Rias Baixas has a very unique trellising system called a Parra which is supported by the iconic granite posts you can see in the region. This ensures the grapes get as much sun exposure as possible and limits the damage caused by pest and disease.
