Fento Wines Rias Baixas Albarino 2018
About the winery:
Fento Wines was created in August of 2012 by wife and husband team Rebecca and Eulogio Pomares (Bodega Zarate). It is a young, family business that makes wines reflecting the strength of the grapes and their nuances and comes with a new focus and presentation. Fento Wines is a personal project which combines natural viticulture with new techniques.
Regarding farming, they work with local Rias Baixas grape varieties, giving great importance to the grape-earth-climate-winemaker aspects. Recently, they have gone beyond the natural border by co-existing with the Portuguese Dão designation. They count on the assistance of small growers, something which is vital if you want to achieve rational work that respects the environment. Many vines use spontaneous cover crop to obtain more concentrated grapes, to improve the soil's structure and avoid erosion.
