Carballal is the second-generation family-run winery, currently composed of 7 brothers who are involved in the project. Their father, Benito Vázquez, was one of the promoters for the Appellation of the Rías Baixas back in the 1970s. The winery is Located in Salnés Valley, Cambados town, sub-region of Rías Baixas. The climate in Rias Baixas is Atlantic with high rainfall average of 1200mm approx per year. But in the summertime Salnés has a microclimate similar to the Mediterranean, which is excellent for the maturation period of the grapes. The grapes are grown in two different estates, “Carballal” (oak forest) with 3.4 hectares of old vines, planted in 1978 and“ A Granxa” (the farm) with 2.4 hectares of younger vines. Juan Carlos, the winemaker, focuses his work at the vineyard to be environmentally friendly and bringing into the bottle the flavours of this Atlantic climate land. He works with organic methods in the vineyard as follows: In Autumn and spring, he enriches the soil with minerals and organic mulch (grass and plants). Also, it’s not ploughed. His fundamental three rules in winemaking are indigenous yeast, fine lees stirring and malolactic fermentation.
Bodegas Carballal are pioneers in the maintenance of the vineyard with permanent vegetation cover. At the time few believed in the effectiveness of this method. However, today they know that this cover is the best for the wines: it helps its longevity and the maturation of the grape, avoids the stress on the vines, contributes natural organic matter and even collaborates with the sustainability of the planet by retaining the CO 2 on the floor.
