ATALAYA DO MAR (D.O. Monterrei)
The Mendez family has been in the wine business for almost 70 years & have always resided in this small corner of Spain; Galicia, just north of Portugal where people have been making wine since Roman times. Today the most famous varieties in the reigion are Albarino & Godello for whites and Mencia for reds. Atalaya do Mar has a very small production of 10 hectares, most of which is Godello & the rest Mencia. The soils are filled with slate stones which gives the wines a mineral note & expressiveness that other regions in Galicia don't have.

Godello is a very aromatic variety & very well respected wine critics all over the world have talked about its potential (Jay Miller with the Wine Advocate says that it is probably his favorite white grape from Spain). Atalaya do Mar with Manuel Mendez at the front, is an example of dedication & determination for quality wine-making; their wines are not only superb, but also a phenomenal value.
