Viña Almirante

About the Winery

In the year 2000 a group of wine growers dreamed up what is today Viña Almirante, a winery made up of 80 partners and families who live by and for wine.
We were inspired by the historic past of Portas (Galicia / Spain) and the legacy of geographer Domingo Fontán, an illustrious local figure who helped us to realise that on the basis of emotional cartography we could make outrageously personal wines.

Portas is synonymous with history, origins and culture.
That of Galicia, and that of our local ancestors. History tells that in the 12th century king Ferdinand II of León gave the Cistercian monks the first plantation of albariño grapevines on record, the Paradisus estate in Santa María de Portas.
