More about the winemakers...

Ramón Bilbao

Hailed as one of Spain’s most innovative producers, Ramón Bilbao was established back in 1924 in the heart of Rioja’s wine region. Ramón Bilbao was a man ahead of his time who sought to travel the whole world and this notion of brave adventure is still strongly ingrained into the essence of the estate. The winery boasts 180 hectares of vineyards, in unique settings throughout the region, which stand out due to their altitude and the proximity to mountainside areas.

The winemaking philosophy is driven by Rodolfo Bastida, who is committed to crafting wines that express the grapes and terroir. Rioja born and bred, Bastida was appointed chief winemaker in 1999 and began pursuing more elegant wines, rebelling against the oaky characteristics of the region to define a new Rioja style: powerful and structured with balanced acidity and freshness.

Mar de Frades

Mar de Frades, meaning ‘Sea of Friars’ in Galego, was launched in 1987, and its history runs parallel to that of the Rías Baixas (Denomination of Origin), renowned for the indigenous Albariño grape. As a pioneering winery in the Galicia region of north-western Spain, Mar de Frades represents the deep-rooted tradition of wine-making in the Salnés Valley and the historic capital of Albariño; the very place where the legend of this grape variety began and where the most sophisticated white wines in Spain are produced.

In Rías Baixas’ unique climate, Albariño shares the same mineral-rich soils and cool climate as the world’s other renowned white wine-producing regions, including France’s Loire Valley, New Zealand, and the Rhine region of Germany.
