Bodegas Fillaboa is owned by the Masaveu family, who trace their winemaking history back to the 14th century, almost the beginning of Spain’s wine tradition. Since the founding of the D.O. Rías Baixas in 1988, Fillaboa, meaning “the good daughter” in Gallego, has produced some of the rarest and highest quality Albariño in the region. Albariño, known as the “White Rhine,” because of its similarity to Riesling, is an indigenous grape varietal to Spain and quite a recent discovery.
Fillaboa is recognised as a highly prestigious identifying mark of Galicia, and it is a delicate and complex combination of the purest craftsmanship and careful use of technology that has placed them at the top of the range in the winemaking world. Rias Baixas enjoys an Atlantic climate, with mild temperatures and heavy rains, and for this reason is known as the 'Green Spain'.
