ATTIS D.O. RIAS BAIXAS
From the Val do Salnes, in the heart of the Rias Baixas region, the brothers Robustiano and Baldomero Fariña create these amazing wines. Their philosophy is simple but not easy to accomplish for everyone: use local varieties, treating each vineyard independently trying to bring out the very best of each small piece of land. Authentic, Artisanal, and Atlantic are the terms that best describe this incredible producer, absolutely devoted to Albariño and the other not so well known native varieties in the Galician coast. They use wild, native yeasts in the wine's fermentation.
